It's a sand bar, not an island. Will definitely come back here. The white sand is soft and water is crystal clear. We're lucky that during our visit the sky is cloudy so it's not that hot. Vitamin sea at it's best! ☺

Yes, via pump boat. Nice place to see sunrise or sunset, otherwise just a sandbar. Watch for the currents if you swim there.
