Yes, the trip out there was long...3 hours with an entertaining speed boat trip of about 15-20 minutes to the actual island. I thought the island was much smaller than the actual pictures and it was. A group of workers was seen hauling one of the thatch huts out of the water as clearly the ocean had taken over the... More

Simply stunning. Sand like flour and an abundance of tropical fish. To call it an island is maybee a little ambitious it's more of a sand bank in the sea but still the most beautiful place I have visited so far. Don't waste your money on Sãona island this is a million times more beautiful.

Their is a light breakfast offered and waiter service to bring you drinks as you travel along on the ocean. We got to see wild dolphins who... More

My first proper go at snokelling and it was amazing. Fish that swim inches from you, a guide that takes you around the reef and a tiny little island to sip drinks and eat fruit and sit in the sun. A wonderful day out! Would definitely recommend! Shame about the stop at a souvenir shop but definitely one to try!
