Me and my college friends visited this place as a getaway from school and other stresses. To get there, you'd be riding on a private boat or ride on the public pump boats from the main land. As we arrived there we were ecstatic. Roaming around the island, we were surprised that we were visited by two aggressive monkeys. Baffled... More

A beautiful island with pure white sand, I was able to take a round tour with my friends. Amazing to find out that the center of the island is really a forest and the back portion is a sanctuary. A quite place to think of things, relax, far from the crowded city. I recommend you to go there early in... More

The beach is nice but there were many trash on the beach and floating in the sea. There were also a lot of plastic trash under the ocean when we were snorkeling. Very dissapointing. It was way better when we were there 6 years ago. There were many flies on the cottages. The shower room and toilet was very dirty,... More

Nice beach but full of trash because tourists just throw their trash anywhere. Shower rooms and rest rooms are also dirty. With the high number of guests, they don't even have enough shower rooms. However, snorkeling is nice. There are lots of fish because part of the island is a sanctuary.

Three words to describe it, corals, marinel life and great sand. A unique paradise which is so much natural. Beach do have some rocks and quite not kid friendly but it's a small letdown. Definitely a great experience :-)

The family was searching for somewhere to go one long weekend, and we decided on Canigao out of whim. It was my second visit but a first for everyone else and they were awed by the beauty of the place. White sand beaches with calm waters of a very relaxing blue hue. Azure skied to match plus a cooperative weather... More
