We went twice; once on a guided tour, and once in a private charter boat. It is just a stunning place. There are refreshments (an ice cream boat!) and helpful people who assist in mooring the boats. Enjoy, relax, and just take in the views....More

Nice little island as part of a day trip. Rented a boat out of Keri beach right on the front for 80 euros for 4 hours and spent a very pleasant day with my family. You can get hot and cold snacks on Turtle island..
