We stayed in the island for 4 days and this was where we stayed The hostel itself is very close to the beach, right next to it actually, full of hammocks and just perfect one for chilling. You will love the calmness of this island.

Except breakfast no food is available but there is a very good restorant right next door. Staff is very kind and... More

My husband and I were booked at nearby Kapas Island Resort which did not serve beer. So we decided to walk over to Captain's Longhouse to get some. Unfortunately, and contrary to what others in Tripadvisor reported, beer or any alcoholic beverage is not served anymore.
