Lovely views, great photo opportunities & if you're lucky you do get to see the turtles!!. Exploring the island by quad and this being one of our stops was well worth doing. One of the best days of our holiday!. Recommended!!

Well worth a visit, such a pretty place a highlight of our holiday. We did a boat trip but wish we just got a cab to the Island and got to enjoy it properly. Saw Turtles up close, wish we brought stuff to jump in the water with them and get a better experience.

You can access here by private hire boat or any amount of boat tours. The access to the beach due to turtles breeding and nesting is limited but the water and surrounding scenic sights are just stunning. lovely to bathe in its deep salty waters
