More than what I expected. A little "wild" and offering restricted services, but probably this is what the local municipality wants especially after the airport shut-down, in order to avoid the island be invaded by too too many tourists... I can't forget the crystal-clear water...More

The island is beautiful, yes - but not for long. Huge groups of Chinese tourists with little respect for the environment, other people and the corals. Hotels have organized pick-ups from jetty with mini-trucks that criss-cross the beach all day and ruin both the tourists'...More

The last time we came was the 6th time visiting the island. Almost every year we will come for snorkeling, swimming and relaxing at the beach. Try to come around August because the water will be more relaxing to swim.

Mass tourism is ruining the environment. Plastic is given out everywhere, any shop you visit gives you plastic bags, many of which end up in the ocean. There are huge amounts of dead coral on some beaches and when snorkelling, you can see coral reefs...More

It will be better to get a package from a resort which includes meal, activity, ferry and stay. I don't think there are any Airbnb on the island.
