It was a cool island to visit. Seemed like a local spot or a spot for experienced travellers. You can pet the stingray. They swim up to you and seems like they like being pet. Kind of like puppies :) Really ugly puppies lol. You...More

We spent a few hours at the beach and fed the stingrays. Got a few beers and enjoyed the view. I say on youtube that you could explore the island by foot but could not find any paths.

We spent the day there chilling and enjoying the beautiful blue water. We took the Island Boys Water Taxi to get there. Watching the stingrays swim around was pretty neat too. This is a must do destination.

You have to take an excursion to see the "real" swimming pigs, and it is a full day with other stops to see thunderball grotto, iguana island and other stops. The real pigs you see advertised are about a 2 hour boat ride... More
