  • Beautiful island beautiful people. We rented a boat for a half a day and made a tour around the island and watched the dolphins for an hour or so. Better to go early in the morning to see more dolphin...  more »

  • You should make this tour due to the dolphins, which you can see quite possibly and can shoot with almost improbability – only the shadow of a dorsal fin is most. No matter. The island itself was shaken by an earthquake a few years ago, the original village moved to the other side of the island. What was the result: A dirty, disorderly settlement with upstream beach huts, where tourists are lined and supplied with shell souvenirs. These are however almost exclusively, counterfeits from China. There is no offered shells in this area almost.
