This island is the perfect tropical island, from its beautiful sandy beach to the friendly people.
We stayed in a beach front bungalow, just metres from the beach. We had a hammock slung between two trees to the side of us. To go to bed at night with the sound of the sea and to wake in the morning to lapping waves was just magic. Being a very small island, there is just a few hours of electricity, this is no problem, as it means there is no light pollution. There a few walks across and around the island to a few other resorts, a rubber plantation and a chao le village complete with a very small school and mosque.
The restaurant on Bulone resort is very good as is all the other six or so on the island. There are no roads, just a few motorbikes carrying goods from one side of the island to the other. The main occupation is the villagers is fisherman. A lady called Su has a small bakery run from the kitchen in her house selling Chelsea buns and muffins, and breakfasts etc. which are very good.To eat out at night either on the beach, or nearby in the warm breeze is magical. There are no shops as such just a few items for sale in the resorts. If you want night life then this island is not for you, if you want peace and tranquility, this is a must.
