It is a really fun place for a swim. Clean clear waters as well as quiet and peace away from the crowds.

Pretty location, chilled out, clean water... Nice for snorkeling and enjoying a barbecue. Nice to be away from the hustle and bustle.

“The bluest water ever”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

This island is definitely worth a visit as the blue water against the white sand bar is the epitome of tropical paradise. I don't think I've ever seen a beach so perfect!
The island itself is a bit basic and so not worth exploring beyond having a swim and taking obligatory smug pictures on sandbar. There are also up to 8 boats here at one time, but its not too busy. Do this trip as part of a diving trip as its 1.5 hours from Malapascua and so it makes sense to combine with diving. Snorkelling is fine, but nothing spectacular and so you may feel a bit disappointed if you shell out for a snorkel tour only.
Evolution run 2 tank dive trips here and, whilst there is an incremental fuel cost, if you are planning to dive in Malapascua, its good value to combine it with a trip here.
