Small little paradise where you can kayak and enjoy the beautiful nature. A bit touristic and crowded at times, but still very worth to visit it.

A gem of beach, small but charming, with crystal clear water, enclosed by large rock formations that make it very private. We only stayed 30 minutes as we needed to move in to another island, but would Not have minded staying there all day......

Obviously a beautiful place but the glossy photos don't show the scores of tourist boats crowding the place.

We hired a 2 seater kayak (400p) to go about from our boat to the lagoon in Tour A. The kayaking part was challenging as we had to paddle through a low tunnel and it gets crowded so manoeuvring becomes difficult for a noob. But...More
