I enjoyed a wonderful catamaran ride over to this island from a lovely little tour company I will review separately, but unfortunately the island itself was like rubbish tip - bottles, cans and wrappers strewn all over the place. This wasn't just recent rubbish either,...More

Uninhabited island with minimal beach (mostly rocks). Boats can be hired from the beach to take you to the island but it's Not worth visiting.

If you go to Negril- this is a great spot to hang and be quiet. Go early in the day as the tide and current both are down along with the tourist traffic

A trip to the reef and this island for lunch is worth every penny. Captain Desmond is the boat to find on the beach to make this day trip. You snorkel to see 100's of fish, an old anchor and cannon, and an authentic Jamaican...More

Dirty, garbage all over the place. People sleeping there. No toilets, no where to sit or swim. Makeshift benches that were falling apart. Just dirty dirty dirty

The reef here is so big that you can snorkel for a couple of days in different places. The locals have beach parties on the island but there isn't anything on the island itself.

We went out for a day on the boat with Rasta Mikey and sons from Yellowbird, which included a lobster lunch on the island. It was a fabulous time. Beautiful beach, lots of pretty places to take pictures & the lobster was delicious too! :)

We were quoted $60.00 at the Rockhouse but we were charged $70.00, so confirm the price before getting on the boat. I could have argued, but $10.00 doesn't break me. I felt sorry for the guys and gave them the extra $10.00... More
