Beautiful island. Nice snorkeling around. Nice walk up the mountain and amazing views worth the steep climb. White sand beaches and blue - green water.

Tortuga island was a great day trip. The meal served was delicious. The beach and water were calm and pristine. It was a very relaxing day. There were deer and wild pigs on the island and dolphins spotted on the way.
