This island is part of an established attraction for tourists which includes a catamaran trip for snorkelling, BBQ, waterfall and the afternoon on the island. When we arrived the beach area was teaming with people with their day trip boats moored offshore. If you like crowds and a place to hire (expensive) sun beds and get a snack and drink... More

We went on a catamaran trip to here and it was a great day out. The sand and the lagoons are just stunning, highly recommend this trip.

We stayed on the island for 2.5hours - on which we were served a 4 course lunch by the beach, had a swim... More

We spend our Honeymoon in Sept-Oct 2013 in the Hotel Le Touessrok. The have a private island and with a nice walk you can visit the other side which is more touristic. We enjoyed it very much, peace, chilling and having just a great time do you MUST se it? No, but its well worth it

A pleasant relaxing way to see the island. Relax on the beach and be served fresh fish, drinks and fruit. Something different, beautiful snorkelling and waterfalls. Uncomplicated and natural. Choise between speed boat and catamaran. U see more with the speed boat, it takes u to other places off the south too
