This island is a bar! Like seriously the only thing on there is a bar with music and a microphone if you're down for singing a few tunes. Quite the spot to watch the kite surfers and capture amazing shots. Sunset here is breath taking...More

A great little excursion! Water taxi over for some rum punch and to play in the shallow waters around it.

This is a really cool island. It is made of coral by the owner of the bar. Beautiful views. Great drinks. The only negative is some of the locals are begging for money.
