We opted to leave our hotel early in the morning and we're so pleased we did so as we were only the 4th boat into the bay. We snorkelled for 30minutes, lots to see, and then explored the island and enjoyed some time on the beach. By time we were leaving the bay it was heaving with tourist ling boats and they were all lined up and crammed next to each other. We definitely were honoured to be there early and see a very peaceful bay

It is as beautiful as all the postcards but it gets amazingly crowded at least twice a day when the tour boats all pull in at the same time.

I arrived by about 8:15am, & there were already lots of people on the beach & dozens of boats. Didn't bother going ashore from my longboat, just took some photo's & left.

Very photogenic, must be amazing if no one else was there

Was very nice but packed full of boats and people and only one little shack that sold packets of noodles or canned drinks although wasn't actually expecting there to even be somewhere to purchase a cold drink so wAs relieved!

Just ok too crowded and a six dollar per person sur charge.We paid hansomely for our Boat to get there. They have a picture of Leonardo DiCaprio but i suggest you download one and go to numerous other swimming and snorkeling spots around the Island.
