  • Really loved this place, beautiful scenery, and the cable car is must . Saw lots of Hornbills,and many more beautiful birds. Hotel right on the beach. Heaven.  more »
  • Perfect for 3 days. Great snorkelling from jetty. Did boat snorkel. Ask about need for wet suit (depends on whether there are jellies around). Don't be put off by army/police/coastguard presence.....  more »

  • Just beautiful. Friendly staff and 360’ views of the ocean. Small beach and clean and comfortable environment. Diving instructor was very helpful, Australian wine to boot. Love it.
  • This is as close to paradise as you will get on this planet. It's also a turtle sanctuary and we were fortunate enough to see a turtle lay eggs as well as witness the hatchlings of turtles and them swimming towards the sea. Every day we would swim with turtles, tropical fishes and even baby sharks. I almost don't want to say anymore, as I fear in years to come, when the word gets out this breathtakingly beautiful island could turn into the next Maya Beach or Boracay. This truly is a special place and when we return in years to come we hope it remains unspoilt.
