Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We have seen on TV the pictures of the turtles laying eggs on the beach from which she was born, but never in "real life" despite being at some locations where we should have seen them in the Caribbean. It has been something we always wanted to experience. Well, after the wet landing*, we climbed the little hill and went to the other side of the island to the beach that was filled with turtle nests and a number of turtles swimming in the bay--we saw one throwing sand. We then watched her struggle mightily to get back into the water. Our guide would not let us assist her--against the law! It took her a good 30 minutes to make the exhausting trek back to the water and we cheered her on! It was a great sight to see her swim away. A little memory that we will have forever!

As for the Pink Flamingos, they are far less interesting. They are a long way aways, but there were about 50 of them. The did a little straing of the pond muck and we were quickly bored. The walk on the approach beach was a real good one. We saw a lot of bird activity and the area is beautiful. The beach is very nice and there were NO FLIES!

This is really a pretty little island with a nice easy walk up the hill and down to the second beach. The landscape is great--a walk through a garden! Lots of vegetation and a lot of green as opposed to the dry environment on the other islands. This is not a good trip to skip--as did a few of our group. There is a lit to see and do that we did not get to see on other adventures.

*Although they (the guide, crew, and brochures) make a "big deal" about the wet landings, there is really nothing complex or difficult about them--if you keep your wits about you. The crew has done them a million times and they know how to get you on and off safely. They do require the wearing of life vest on all small boat activities--they are awkward, but essential.

Wow....what a beautiful snorkel. The ship did tell us this would be the best snorkel on the entire trip and it didn't disappoint. We loved it, as did all our kids.

There is a slight current that takes you along the entire shoreline - sharks, sea lions playing with you, sea turtles, tons of other fish, etc. This is a great spot.

We had a wet landing here on the beach then walked up the hill to a beautiful lagoon with pink flamingos, then over to hill to another beach which we walked along. Saw plenty of birds there and back then cooled down with a swim in the water.

The huge lagoon filled with flamingos was fantastic! We hiked around the lagoon and up a hill for fantastic views then we headed over to the beach where we saw dozens of sea turtles in the surf mating. Another great cruise ship stop with zodiac excursion.

We stopped here and took an easy hike to see flamingos and also visited a beach were there were many sea turtles in the water. The flamingos were beautiful and very plentiful. The walk to the beach was also pleasant and easy. There were many turtles in the water but we did not swim here. The flamingos were really special and I was glad that we stopped here. At the time we were here, we did not see any of the penguins.

A walking experience will let you view blue footed boobies, seal lions, sea iguanas, sand lizards and flamingos. Frigate birds and many others that I've forgotten the names of ! A wonderful experience. a beautiful island with a beautiful beach/bay. If you snorkel then you have a chance to interact with seal lions, rays and multiple fish.

A fairly interesting walk with lots of yellow warblers, finches and flamingoes at the lagoon. We then had a careful splash in the surf with many stingray before heading to Devils Crown for a decent snorkel, seeing a number of sharks and getting buzzed by shearwaters over head. Worth a visit.
