  • Have a hermit crab was horrendous, children were overjoyed. In a tidal flow grow, shrink, as when we went was a little mountain. But thanks to the coral covered with either too much clear water! It is beautiful.

  • Last year of the tide ebb and flow was seen regardless of the argument, but this year even visible at low tide but only a few, sorry. I don't know what the tide of nature, so what it isn't. It is also, and the island did land, it seems to be nice.

  • Barasu Island wanted to go. Sandy not the island itself still in hand and looking beautiful is not. Photos with brilliant as Emerald of the sea, land and very little feeling of shame; But not so beautiful around than you think beautiful, weather permitting. Please take a look at land!

  • 中文名爲鳩離島。 Almost disappears when high tide。Made up of debris of hard coral。 A must stop。
  • Island shape and height of a typhoon in the changes each year. Currents around surprisingly fast. You might swim away from the island, and difficult for beginners.
