TIP: When you go to the port, there is a shop that will let you rent snorkeling gear. Don't rent a life vest for snorkeling, you can use the vests in the boat. Go ahead and rent snorkeling goggles and flippers. The island takes about 30 mins by boat. You can opt to go snorkeling first and then visit the... More

A great place to go for the day. Leave early as it gets hot. Make sure you swim out or take the boat (strong current) to the area where you snorkel. Loads of fish. Cheap beer and good bbq pork is offered so get a hut, kick back and enjoy!

First off, the place is beautiful. It really is. We were lucky to be there in July, on a weekday, which meant we pretty much had the place to ourselves. What I don't like about the place is the excessive fees. After paying for the boat fee, you have to pay for the environmental fee, a fee to use one... More

You can stay longer in this island compare to the opposite white islet of the island since this island has lots of trees and cottages. Food sometimes are out so best if you bring your own. We tried snorkeling and saw nice variety of fishes and coral although the storm washed out some. Clean water and white sand.

You first have to walk for a hundred meters to reach the boat at low tide. The nice red and green color you see is not coral, it is old plastic bottle and potatoe chips wrapper. Once on Mantigue, on your way to pay the environmental fee, you can find many pieces of broken glass which for sure will be... More
