  • 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.

  • Beautiful place great for snorkeling and good photos. The left side of this island is the best place for diving, because the visibility and very good, if you can afford go normal boat, look for information in the place of embarkation of the channel, I go to "read" of walking on the street or vendors that offer on the trip , are very expensive is fast on the charts in places and delay too much output is return too fast, you don't even enjoy the right locations. A good tip is to look for the maritime taxis are much cheaper, very much.

  • One of the many paradisiacal places around the Lakes. A sea of crystal clear waters, where there is a Cove where the tour boats make a stop for a delicious dip, in which one can see a large amount and variety of fish that inhabit the place
