I seriously love everything about this island. There are lots of coconut trees. The air is fresh and the water is crystal clear. It's a perfect place to go swimming and do some water sports activities with friends and families!

Dis a bit of snorkeling and found some interesting fishes. It’s like you’re in an aquarium since the water is really clear! Also the buffet which was included in the tour package ia located here. Good food. You will love it here.

Nice, but not very much there. The sea is pristine and the sand is also very clean. Not very much to do.

There is a decent toilet but dont expect first class facilities as it is an island far from the city.
