    We went there as part of a tour. The island is quite small with lots of tourists. The swimming area was quite small with a great diving board area. My teenage son loved it, me less so.  more »

    Incredible site that just becomes tourism, with possibility of snoorkel. There is a dining area that also serves drinks.

    The buffet was great. Lots of food choices. The view was great. But it's so frustrating if the waters are so murky and you can barely see anything. And a fish bit me too.  more »

    Such a fun beach. Be careful feeding the fish. They're pretty hungry. My leg got bitten 3x. Lol

    Nice island with a good swimming area and diving board. Some coral to look at and marine life. There's a small tiki style bar and restrooms.

    grab a beer, and enjoy the evening on this gorgeous island...or ask the man with the blue cap for a cocktail, and he will teach you the essence of life.
