Couldn't see coral reef. Lots of places to spend money on food and clothes. Disappointed. Charge extra for use of lounge chair. No showers to clean off after beach

Our entire family of 17 people booked a one-day Excursion to go to the island.  We had made it very clear while booking that morning that it was extremely important for us to be able to snorkel since 4 of the members were under 7...More

Why would you bother to visit an island that is not that big, has a resort in the middle and has umpteen million visitors a day. It's really hard there to find your own space, people on top of people and it's not fun at...More

This place is a tourist trap... It's where they bring large excursions and then nickel and time for each little experience.... Not worth the day or the money

Great day trip. Food prices were good value on island. We had the trip that left at 10:30am and returned leaving island at 2:30pm. We travelled with two kids and would advise to take full day and not half day.

Crystal clear water and sea life galore. My partner and I recently went to Green Island and we were blessed with great weather. We saw a sea turtle from the pier upon arrival, and a stingray and many various colourful fishes whilst snorkeling. Plenty of...More
