Beautiful beach, great place to relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery! Using the beach is 150 pesos per person. It was a little tricky finding a boat to take us to the island, however after we figured that out it was a great afternoon.

As a person who loves beach, it's just an average. The beach is clean, limited electricity and there's no enough fun activities there. The store and restaurant there is quiet pricey so bring your own food, drinks and other necessities.
