If you want peace and tranquility with the option to take some light recreation, fishing or snorkeling, this is the place to go. Great to go with some friends as the houses are big enough to share without invading personal space

This island is beautiful, peaceful, great for vacays, it's one of my fav destinations, the downside though is the lack of luxurious hotels at the centre, most of them are average! An island this beautiful deserves classy hotels for the full experience!
