We went out snorkeling. The water was perfect, lots of cool fish and pretty coral and the locals stay far enough back that you won't get run over. We'll go back to actually hike on, what appears, to be a very beautiful island.

We spent an afternoon very comfortable, I was surprised such a magnificent degree of cleanliness, both on the beach and in the sea, all staff there works very friendly and attentive. A family atmosphere. Widely recommended.

This is a good place to snorkel. The water is clear and calm. A boat ride gets you there and back. You have the option of enjoying the beach or expliring the island. A nice place to spend the day.

Bought a ticket to be taken to the island by boat from Zoccalo. It took an hour to get to the island because the boat was constantly stopping while one of the boat staff would jump in the water and swim with the fish and then ask for tips. We were bobbing around about 20 metres from the island shore... More

My husband and my two children and I went to this island it's a wonderful beach. We enjoyed a big part of the day here. The down side is that it was very crowded and had to pay for chairs to sit on by the beach. I recommend bringing beverages and snacks/food because it is very expensive to buy it... More

After paying the $400 to get the boat trip to the island, we spent over an hour going around the bay at 3mph while constantly being harassed to buy food, pictures, souvenirs and give tips to divers and swimmers. When we finally got to the island after what felt like an eternity, the captain declared that 'the island was full,... More
