Travelling from Manchester England this was one of my many places to visit. Very easy to reach via boat $69 return for an adult 45 minute journey. Amazing island with lots to do in the daytime. Snorkelling, diving, swimming, trampoline on the water, pool, swim up bar.
A must is to see the turtle hospital. You can snorkel near the white rock to the right of the beach front to see turtles in the sea. Amazing! Stinger suits only $10 to hire and great idea to prevent sunburn and being stung!
Hotel rooms are lovely, very clean, fresh towels and complimentary mini toiletries. Coffee making facilities, fridge and tv. $144 per night. Recommend at least 2 nights stay.
Didn't try the restaurant as I was happy at Foxy's bar for snacks. Drinks very reasonable with great cocktails in Foxy's bar. Recommend the Echo Geko!
Recommend taking snacks with you and extra drinks as bar closes between 9/10pm if not busy. On site shop limited for food and drinks. Also don't forget basic medication eg paracetamol or panadol as nothing available if you need them.
Foxy's bar has a singer but he wasn't on whilst I was visiting. Staff are excellent on the bars.
Special thanks to Jerone, Ryan and Phil for taking care of me during my stay. Made it most enjoyable and entertaining. Please say thank you.
