Perfect for beach lovers who love to chill by the beach. There is a sandbar in this island, you can ask the locals for the time on when to go to this island so you could spot the sandbar.

Most of island is private territory occupied by resort and I can't tell anything about it. But most people come to the island after shark whale watching tour and there are so many people on small beach. And there is nothing to do there.
