One of the offered island tour at Honda Bay. Explore the island and try snorkeling to swim with the fishes while you feed them. Restaurant and a bar are available in the island.

We went here to eat our lunch after the island tour, luckily we were first in line and we had the first dibs on the food prepared. Great for photoshoots. =)

Can you please provide some feedback on the quality of the restrooms at these islands? I read that some places don't really have any decent restrooms. And since Cowrie appears to be the place where everyone goes to for lunch, i'm wondering if they maintain clean restrooms here. Thanks.

There is a decent toilet but dont expect first class facilities as it is an island far from the city.
