This island is remote and beautiful. We took a tour of the island and it is absolutely beautiful and unspoiled. Highly recommend for a day of leisure if you are cruising or a great place to find a resort. You must like remote.

Took a Catamaran trip out here to do some snorkling. There is a shipwreck off shore and not too deep so it is a fun snorkling spot.
