I enjoyed a wonderful catamaran ride over to this island from a lovely little tour company I will review separately, but unfortunately the island itself was like rubbish tip - bottles, cans and wrappers strewn all over the place. This wasn't just recent rubbish either,...More

Uninhabited island with minimal beach (mostly rocks). Boats can be hired from the beach to take you to the island but it's Not worth visiting.
