Went swimming there, less crowded beach as compared to Sapi. There's a local restaurant there, food ranging from RM8-18. There are locker for rent as well, half day RM10. Bring your own sampoo and towel cause they go out of stock fast.

not sure about the accommodation on the island -but bear in mind all food/drink on the island is way more expensive than the mainland - so any accommodation built there will almost certainly fall into the "luxury" bracket... More
