I give you 5 stars only for the atmosphere and the kindness of people who work there. Pleaseee, do something for the toilets, were too dirty but still it’s worth it! I would go again!

Nice sand and beautiful beach, lots of palm trees. Good place for swimming and feeding the fish, but the water is not clear enough to go snorkelling. Beautiful place to hang around and relax.

The bar made some strong cocktails while my daughter fell asleep during her massage. The water was gorgeous for a swim at the beach.

It’s a waste of money just for visiting this island! Maybe, maybe if you don’t have anymore more to visit this will be ok for taking a coconut on a small beach and chill for a couple of hours!

I was snorkeling on this island and could only see about 1 meter at the most in front of me at the water in the roped off areas that are designed for swimming and snorkeling.

Very disappointed.

This was our last stop for our Honda Bay tour. Cowrie island must be the main island where tourists stay the longest. We arrived just in time to have a sumptuous buffet lunch. A barbecue picnic on the beach is always fun. The beach of the island was relatively clean considering the number of tourists at the time of our visit. Swimming was the main activity to do. Fine sand and clear water still exist. Snorkeling is not suggested because there was nothing much to see.

We had our own hut where we were able to relax. We also tried renting a kayak boat.
