  • One of my favourite islands.
  • Visited as part of a hole in the rock tour. Stopped here for an included BBQ. NOW was very basic probably only to be expected given cosy of whole trip. Facilities on the island for the 1hour break were good. The bar was good, the drinks cold and the toilets clean. Had time for either a short walk or a swim whilst here. We desk and was great. Plenty of grass at a to lay out on and outside tables to use.
  • Great island. Stunning views amazing coast line.
  • Relaxing, calm and amazing views you get any opportunities to go there, you go.
  • Nice hike over the island
