Really a nice place that worth for you to spend a few days without family. I saw a lot of beautiful fishes and turtles. You will see the perfect sunrise and sunset. Just come to enjoy it. You will also enjoy the cocktail in the mini bar during the night.

I'm not a diver but went snorkelling every day, it was like swimming in an aquarium and unspoiled with a huge variety of fish and turtles to see - no dirty boats in sight! It's not a party island, again another reason we loved it but the food there was delicious. It was... More

The most beautiful sea, and service here is wonderful, detail oriented, you can see smiles from every staff, and delicious food, suggest you stay more than three days! You must come to see sunset, it is really beautiful. Even you can not speak English, you can come, there are two staff could speak Chinese very well.
