Beautiful island but seems too popular and too crowded this May summer to really enjoy. Hence, 4 of 5 stars. Larger than Lahos island, we did spend lunch and more time here.

It was a bit crowded with tourists when we visited. The rock formations were beautiful, though. Swimming here will be difficult during the low tide because of the corals.

Must visit! Very fine sand and clean water. Great for kids and adults alike. You can buy buko (young coconut) here. For those daring to climb, it has cliff with a lagoon and spectacular view.

Far & remote place but it was worth it for me & my family. Loved it there & we're hoping to come back again & again. Wide sand bar, great for snorkling!

The most interesting part of this island, is the vertical limestone cliff that leads to a lookout from the top overlooking an inner lagoon which has a large solitary milkfish. According to folklore, the mate of this milkfish was taken by local people who befell a tragic illness. The white sandy beach below it is also great for swimming.

The beach is definitely nice. Swimming here is definitely a must. BUT, it will not be complete if you don't climb to see the lagoon. It's the highlight of the island. Camping is allowed in the area. Arrange it with your tour operator or guide. Bring lots of water.
