  • What a great day on a small private beach. Wonderful staff, quiet time on the beach and good snorkeling. Saw a turtle just north of the small reef. Perfect breeze while you sat on the beach.  more »
  • Beautiful islet of small size with truly transparent water than anything to envy to Maldivian beaches.

  • The smallest island I have ever been to. This place is beautiful and relaxing. I have been there twice. Once with a couple of friends for a chilling day and the other time I have been to an organized party and it was amazing!! Nice to get there windsurfing.
  • As a kid (7 or something) we got a boat to the island from Antigua then snorkeled from it for ages and it was georgeous, hella fish, I'd say one of the best fruit named islands I think I'll ever go to. 10+ years ago there it was just all beach with 1 bar. No idea what it's like now but it's worth a 2nd visit
  • Haven't been here before but it look really cool!!
