“Bring your goggles or snorkeling gear”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

We enjoyed a couple hours exploring around the island and then swimming in the water. It is fun to walk out to the island (lots of cool shells and stones to see + interesting to see busy local fishermen); interesting to take a look around; and then snorkeling about is super fun. I would recommend that you wear some kind of water shoe for the swimming. It is very rocky and a little rough on your feet. A very fun time and my kids- ages 9 and 11- enjoyed themselves, too. Afterwards go eat at the amazing soda in Cabuya!

“Great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

Great place for a rest day. Getting there after 10:30 am is the best time to go into the island. (Though always check with the calendar)

“Haunting Cemetary Island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

The island was great, we snorkeled and walked around the cemetary. You can walk out to the island at low tide. What more can I say?

A great walk across to the island when the tide is out. Remember to wear sensible shoes! The cemetery is interesting to wAlk around.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

Highly recommended to go to this beautiful cemetery. The walk out is beautiful and hot. The view from the island is breathtaking and we just loved the feel of this very special place.
