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

The water is so clear u you can see the bottom and turtles swimming around. Fish and sea urchins truly is worth the few euros to go and see.

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..

We stopped off here after taking a boat to see the turtles , the sea was warm and the island itself beautiful , we sailed around the island and into the caves it hides . A truly memorable day.
