“A nice change for a day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

We booked a trip to the Island with locals who stay by the bridge to nowhere. Went over in a small boat and must admit was very nervous on the journey over as the sea was very choppy and we were sailing into the waves (coming back was a lot better) The Island is divided into two parts, one side for the public and the GBP Cayo Levantado on the other. The sand was very fine and the sea a glorious blue that was very clear We enjoyed watching the fishermen bringing in their catch.

“Dissaponted”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

We went on trip to the national park (caves & birds) then on to Bacardi Island which was nice but not that nice. As in other places it was constant sellers on the beach. We had a nice time but I have seen nicer beaches in Wales.

“BRING MONEY”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

Everything costs there...if you want a lounge chair it costs...drinks & food are expensive and after leaving the dock you must run the gauntlet of trinket dealers...HOWEVER...The beach is VERY beautiful and the sand is exquisite. Most of the time you can watch fisherman casting their nets into the turquoise waters and even buy some fish from them...um yeah, now where you going to clean and cook it, EH !!!!
