Really excellent experience overall. We only did the day trip, but the snorkeling, lighthouse, and nature walk were all well run. Though you’re close to shore and Stone Town, the island was just isolated enough for us to really get lost in the natural beauty...More

This island is stunning and you are totally captivated with it if you go on a day trip. The trip includes a walk through the forest with a really knowledgeable guide. A fantastic local lunch and then a guided snorkeling trip. The trip seems expensive...More

Three of us went as day visitors on a Sunday. A fun boat ride to get there. Plenty of explanations as to what to do and how to do it. The snorkeling is good but not the best. We were left alone which was great...More

We did a day trip, which was amazing. The snorkelling and the forest tour (which ended at the top of historic lighthouse) were both great. We really did not want to leave and envied those who stayed for the night in the eco bungalows. Great...More

An ecological Island that take care off the marine nature. The day tour is expensive (99$) per person, for a boat ride, snorkeling, lunch and a tour around the island to learn about the ecosystem. Must plan this trip by calling 2days in advance. The...More
