From arrival to departure this place amazes. The attentiveness of the staff is mind-blowing yet it feels so effortless. The island itself is very organised, clean and it is surely one of the best places for snorkelling and diving. The cool vibe, constant chill-out music playing on the island truly makes it one of my memorable stays!
