We rented a bicycle and cycled to different parts of the island. We snorkelled in the crystal clear sea and were greeted with a whole array of fish and sea creatures. One of the restaurants we visited served desserts in giant seashells. Be sure to spend at least one night on this lovely island with much to offer.

Please join the night tour or diving. It's easily to see beautiful nature here and under water is easier to see beautiful creatures than our main land.

Ocean Hot springs, Mountains and Ocean views what more can you want. Scooter riding around the island is easy and fun, remember to put gas in the scooter. Went during the week so not very crowded, more crowded on the weekends. Visit the prison and learn a little history.

Hire an electric bike and go around the island. You dont need to worry about fuel. We saw most of the island in a day. Was very sad to see deer chained up outside a couple of shops lying on concrete. Do not shop or take photos. Do not encourage this cruelty. The ride around island is very safe, there... More

Fantastic place to spend a day or two at. Has a variety of activities available like scuba diving, snorkelling, and hot springs to try. Without a residence license and etc, you won't be able to get a moped (highly essential to getting around on the island), but you should be able to get your hands on an e-bike, which should... More

Green Island is a beautiful place with lot of ocean attractions and a natural sea water spa. Other than snorkeling, Diving, and hiking in the old mountain trail...there is nothing much to do. Two days at this place is enough to cover the whole island. Hotel facilities are really bad, no maintenance at all...just good enough to roughen the night.... More

We spent 3D2N there and basically explored most of the island. Basic mode of transportation would be the motorbike or the electric scooter, which can be rented almost immediately after you drop off at the harbour (just a short distance away). Beautiful view of the ocean, grassland, some mountainous rocks with deers roaming about and a cave. The Human Rights... More
