Love peaceful place to relax on the beach, with fine food and friendly helpful staff. However, overly expensive making it poor value compared with other holiday destinations.

We did parasailing, snorkelling, swimming and had a great lunch at the resort. Enjoyable cruise! Great day out if you're lucky with good weather.

If you like longer time in the boat on the sea on this day trip, take this. Unlike some of the other islands, Castaway is less crowded. Have a resort hotel to stay, a swimming pool, and only the front stretch of the beach for sea sports, swimming, relaxing, etc as the island is quite big compared with others.

After a disappointing visit to treasure island, we decided to give castaway a go. It was a bit more expensive, but worth it. Lovely host who gave a comprehensive tour on arrival, and checked in with us numerous times during the day. There were a variety of options for lunch - we went the buffet which was varied, fresh and... More

The day trip will make you want to stay. I liked the pool and I didn't like when we had to leave. Food was yummy and we needed way more time to soma up the relaxing pool.
