There are no words to show how beautiful this place is. Just must see place. The best way to see this place is to rent a boat and to go there individually by yourself. In Laganas you can rent your own boat from 80-100eur for few hours.

Beautiful. No turtles unless you ask drivers to take you to see them. Amazing sand and lovely food on a boat.

Always choose a boat service who are participating in the turtle conservation plan, they know where to go and once they see the turtles they respect the animals in there natural habitat, they need quiet and space

We went on a boat trip from 10.00am to 4.30pm with Thomson and it was wonderful. Swimming in the sea and seeing the turtles was truly amazing.

It is well worth a visit as most of the Turtles lay their eggs there. You cant go on the Island as its for conservation of the Turtles. However one can go on a slow boat trip in thd hope of spotting one of the bottle nosed turtles which ars really beautiful creatures. The other Islands for turtle breeding are... More

My friend and I went over to the island by boat taxi (only for 10 euros for going there and returning to the main island). The island is absolutely stunning, one of my favourite places and the water is crystal clear. There's a boat shop on the island where you can purchase hotdogs, crisps, alcohol and juice too. We both... More

Was a Amazing full of stunning views and was very interesting to heard about the history of the island. Island provides food and drink services. Only fault is there aren't any toilets and it's difficult to sunbathe as you are restricted to stay in certain areas due to eggs.
