  • Perfect! Everything was absolutely perfect! From accommodation, service, food, friendliness... Releasing turtles was a highlight. Snorkelling around the house reef too. Could only highly recommend!  more »
  • What a great experience, SUPER. Small island, all cottages by the sea, all on stilts, each cabin private entrance, there are no paths for the cottages, only the beach and sea. In the wider area nothing but water. And then the environment, cristal clear water where you can see beautiful fish but especially many sea turtles. Snorkelling is a must, with a whopper of a sea turtle neck hours have swum (Sun from the water in cottage). We were lucky enough to see a release of young sea turtles twice. Gorgeous. Beautiful restaurant on stilts in the sea.
