“Good but be prepared to be with everyone else!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

This is a pretty island for sure but a tourist trap that probably spoils it a little. There are probably quieter spots you could find elsewhere. The sand is golden and the waters are good for swimming though as well as fantastic snorkeling a little further out, hence the tourist trap... Worth a stop as part of a bigger trip.

“Good value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012

Good value for money, however the island is plagued with tourists and there isnt much room for down time. However, it is beautiful.
