This island is part of tour B and the view is really nice from the top of the hill. It would be good if the tour guide would have more Information about the places you visit (and speak english) :)

Even with high tide it is beutiful but low tide makes it more impressive. Not so many people as in the lagoons and caves.

You have to disembark from the boat chest deep to go to the sandbar of this island. Lots of boats were floating so swimming could not be enjoyed. So the place was a good place for photo shoot only.
