The beach is nice but there were many trash on the beach and floating in the sea. There were also a lot of plastic trash under the ocean when we were snorkeling. Very dissapointing. It was way better when we were there 6 years ago....More

Three words to describe it, corals, marinel life and great sand. A unique paradise which is so much natural. Beach do have some rocks and quite not kid friendly but it's a small letdown. Definitely a great experience :-)

2011 was the first hello to canigao then revisited in 2015. Fresh catch for sale cooked according to your request. Sunset view is a treasure, clear cool water. Whitesand gives comfort to those tired soles. Souveneirs and karaoke available in the islet. Water supply though...More
