  • Crystal clear waters. But calm and great for children. The two sides are great but the island itself is awesome.

  • The island is really beautiful with a transparent water and many corals and marine life. Many boats are anchored and attached to her. Did a snorkeling trip and cylinder there and the marine life is very beautiful and rich. I saw Octopus, many fish, schools of sardines and a huge turtle very pretty.

  • Slow and fast place to reach (15 minutes by boat). Clear water and a great alternative to dive even in high season.
