  • Spent the day by ourselves on the island for about 5 hours. Brought food and drinks, swimming in some spots but pretty shallow and have to sneek through coral. Very nice and secluded! pretty surreal.....  more »
  • Lots of fish life around & hermit crabs, the crabs were bigger than I have seen before, kids would love this, but the swimming is the main attraction here in the beautiful water.  more »
