It was very beautiful and good for a little relaxing and swimming. The view was amazing! Don't expect any bamboo on bamboo island haha the name decieves you. Nevertheless I recommend going there the beach very beautiful.

This island is pristine, both on the land and in the water. Clean soft sand and fabulous clear waters, absolutely perfect for snorkelling. If your a photographer you will get many great photo’s while walking around it which takes less than hour all up. Ideally...More

We visited here as part of an all day snorkelling tour and we absolutely loved it. We didn't do any snorkelling here but it is the definition of paradise, the sand is white and the sea is a lovely blue. Definitely worth visiting.

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
