We stopped here on a speed boat tour for lunch. It has toilets and a few shacks where you can buy meals and snacks etc. Also good for swimming.

The island is beautiful, clean blue waters and white sand beaches. But that is quite a common thing in all of the islands here, hence if you compare it might just fall flat. Good location as part of island hopping!

We actually stayed in one of the islands for 3 nights. Bamboo island was 30 Minute boat ride away. Do not pay a high price by taking a tour, walk around beach and ask any of the guys hanging out by their boat to take you... More
