A nice island to be on as it helps to relieve stress and acquire a good air. But it’s only fun to be on when u got company and ur own drinks, music and activities to do.

Beach was a bit dirty due to the recent flooding and rains, however, the experience was amazing. Please remember to bring Shillings as activities do cost extra.
