“Pretty”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2014

Lovely little stretch of island - too bad it was overcast that morning. We visited Snake Island as part of a larger island tour.

“Who doesn't love a sand bar?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2014

It's possible to walk across it. The water is clear and it's interesting to see the contrasting sides of sand and seagrass. There is small hill to hike up to so you can see clearly. What made me sad was the starving strays (they supposedly have homes) that crossed over during low tide. I wish I brought some snacks for them. Their is a fishing village that still exists in the distance. I would reluctantly recommend this place.

“Breathtaking!”

The water was crystal clear. We hiked up a hill & the view was just breathtaking! It was worth the climb. :)

“Nature's wonder!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2014

A strip of white sand, changing shape when tide changes, no wonder it is called the Snake Island! The mysterious mangrove is pictorial perfect too, but I'm not one to go inside those shrubs for sure! There is a shack with a few locals who may either be staff too, or guide to a short trek up the cliff for a breath taking view. We did not try that path though, the sand bar was more than enough beautiful experience for us.
