A nice spot for a weekend away. About an hour from Padang by boat. Saw two turtles when we were snorkelling there two years ago. Did a bit of cycling around the island and saw some blizzard lizard! Would recommend this place for a peaceful weekend break

literally! like a tsunami did hit the island. But this one was a tsunami of anger. The main building and restaurant burned down. The bungalows are completely demolished. It is all gone. What a petty!

This island actually good for snorkeling and banana boat, though the coral is not in a good condition, but there were still so many big fish you can find underneath, but I rather disappointing to see the cottage and thrash everywhere, very sad to see such a promising island isn't maintained

At the time we got there it was only me and girlfriend also three islanders. The corals already smashed up near the end of the beach but you still can see many colourful fishes and sea creatures. The view was breathtaking especially when you walk to the top of the island. They still have a jogging and bicycle track Good... More

I agree with previous reviewers, the island is very beautiful, soft white sand, the surf beaches are very beautiful and incredible scenery. Food and drinks can be obtained easily but, yes, it is a bit pricey :-) I love this Island, but the government should seriously pay attention to the island including access transportation to get there to be made...

One hour trip from the harbor. This island was beautiful. White sand, and good view. The electricity was shut down at noon, and if you are going to stay here, don't forget to bring your own drink water. The hotel did not served not so many free drink water here,
