Booked a trip to go and see the turtles in laganas bay, then the boat took us to turtle island to swim in a beautiful cove with caves. We then went to another similar cove. Well worth the visit.

Had a lovely 3 hour boat trip to the island... saw turtles early on in the trip and then had two swim stops in beautiful, clear water - highlight was jumping from the boat and swimming through the caves. Definitely recommend for all ages 😊

Lovely place. We rented a speedboat and went out to the island. It had a great floating bar so we could have some drink s and explore the area.
