This is a lovely quiet little island with not much to do but really good fresh local dishes and reasonably priced drinks both alcoholic and non. Only problem is the hordes of tourist boats that lob up around 1pm every day so go early in the morning to avoid the crowds.

we took a long tail boat across to th island ( an experience wort having ) and arrived at 11am. There were 15- 20 people lounging on deck chairs on the beach. With an open air restaurant and bar nearby ( at somewhat inflated prices ) we soaked up the sun until around 1pm when a number of boats arrived and disgorged some 100-150 passengers. The tranquility ceased and we returned to the mainland. Get there early and enjoy the solitude and peace. Note : it's a great beach for children.

The island was serene, the waters amazing, the sand white, quiet underpopulated island.
The restaurants on the island are however a bit expensive considering you still have to spend quite a bit on a boat ride.

We landed here as our tour guide took us here instead of Bamboo Island during our excursion because of high tides and raining. It's a little beach in the middle of the sea with a little bar and lots of chairs, swings, hammocks and umbrellas for people to lounge on, and a small swimming area with clear water.
Since there's only one bar and restaurant prices are quite high, but sitting on the beach with any drink is totally worth it! it's a really lovely little beach to relax on.
Would have loved to spend more time here just relaxing and was lucky as when we reached there not many people visited

Only had a few hours on the island, would have liked to have stayed longer. One bar serving cocktails ( quite expensive) but they have the monopoly. Beautiful white sandy beach and clear sea. A place to forget the worlds troubles for a few hours at least, we were lucky not many people about on the day we visited. Quite a tourist attraction and can get quite busy on some days according to the people working on the island. Would visit again when in Phuket.
