This is a little island about a mile from Breezes/Hedo. There's not much happening there except they serve lobster lunches. They lift up a cage with nice sized lobsters. You pick what you want. They let you take pictures and then throw it on the grill. Not much to do while they're cooking...just look around a small sort of beach thing. The lobster was awesome. About $20/person...I can't negotiate so you might get it cheaper.

The best lobster we ever had in our life! It couldn't possibly get any better! We got to watch live lobsters come right from the ocean, prepped before our eyes and cooked over an open fire.

This was an absolutely amazing day. Vincent took us on a snorkel tour & then dropped us at the island. While there, you can purchase fresh lobster for $20 & they grill it for you. Incredible!

We took a boat trip to this island and did some snorkelling and strolled around. Really pretty spot. I most enjoyed the Lobster that a local guy cooked fresh for us, it was yum yum!

The island is dirty and no bathrooms. They tell you to follow the path and find a tree. My experience was a very bad one. there were 13 of us. The catamaran looked great anchored out in the water, but once you got on you could see how old it was(bad shape) we all paid $60. told there would be rum drinks,red stripe,water,and soda. Well there was no water or soda on board. I had one rum drink, then was told that captain cut his hand and there was blood all over the ice he was making our drinks with, that ended that. Once on the island were had our lobster that was grilled for us, very dry and nothing to wash it down with, not good. This year they are running a glass bottom boat (Desmond) the men stood in thier little hut and yell to people walking on the beach, hasseling you every day and wouldn't take no as an answer, maybe if they took pride in their business they would approach you while they walked the beach to sell their boatrips. They were charging differant prices to differant people. I hope they get it together.
