Great morning snorkeling then beautiful lunch. Guides really good and looked after us all, good with both 7yr old and 13yr old, also had lady with walking difficulties and helped her on and off boat, nothing too much trouble. Saw some beautiful fish and coral, lunch was also very nice. Would recommend to all.

Lovely place to chill on the beach. Small bars right on the sand. Went there as part of a snorkelling trip. I imagine it could get busy in high season.

Seven adults in my group and a group of 2 adults 1 small child shared a motorized long boat for the morning tour. I give Mr. Man 5 stars for overall fun and a well planned day, and 1 star for the snorkel experience, so 3 stars seems fair.

Pick up at the hotel was on time and the air conditioned van was nice. The two guides were very friendly and welcoming. The boat ride to the island was so much fun. However, with somewhat rough seas we, at least the child, should have been given the life jackets.

The amazing parts of the day:
- beautiful views, lovely water colors
- really enjoyed the open air boat ride
- lunch was super yummy and plentiful, we had to buy beer separately if we wanted it, but the lunch came with bottled water
-beach was perfect, and our guide negotiated very cheap price for us to use 2 kayaks for 45 minutes
- they took us to a small water slide in a cove after lunch and we had the best time sliding and screaming in joy

We snorkeled twice. The guides people skills went above and beyond, their water wildlife skills/ethics not so much

At our two snorkel stop the guides offered us two snorkel options to accommodate different skill levels. 4 of us went on the longer swim with a hide while the others stayed by the boat and then met up with us further down the island coast. The guide was very careful to keep us altogether and even held one woman’s hand so she could stay with us more easily.

On the second snorkel tour, part of the group stayed Olin a beach and layer in the water while the others snorkeled.

Here is what I have issues with:
- it was nice that the snorkel guides would dive down and point out coral etc. to us, unfortunately they also picked up coral and sea urchins and even asked if we wanted to take a piece to our hotel room
-we saw something that they identified as sea cucumbers, which was cool, but the guide pulled one out golf the water and offered it to us to touch
-the beach group said a guide tossed a sea cucumber at them while they were playing in the water. See cucumbers are animals, and all of this touching is something that I do understand is not considered appropriate or ethical when snorkeling.

Beautiful spot but a real shame that there are so many garbages on the beaches. Even if coming from the sea there is no cleaning done. Too many tourism kills corals. Real pity for nature

Fantastic afternoon on the sunset tour. The guides were really helpful and went over and above to make the experience awesome. We had a 7 year old in our group and they swam with her the entire time making sure she saw all the sea life possible. The guides were also awesome at the sea slide mucking around with the kids.

We tried a full day speed boat tour with another company which was really good with friendly staff but this experience was next level.
