“boating trip”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2012

liked : the beach and cool water to play around.
disliked: the untidiness of visitors throwing litter alround.
there are no dustbins/ garbage area so you see plenty of plastic bottles/ cans etc floating around

“beautiful nature spoilt by humans”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 February 2012

St Mary's Islands is a short boat ride from Malpe beach, and could have been a lovely tiny little island, had it not been submerged under piles of garbage. Really a pity. Basically, my impression is that people come over for a picnic, and just leave their garbage behind, that no one ever come to pick up. Somewhat paradoxically, there is no place on the island where you can buy any water or anything to drink (or eat, for that matter), so if you don't come with your own supplies, you are likely to get dehydrated very soon. It is difficult to get any shade on the island (unless you don't mind sitting on the top of beer cans and the like). There are a couple of small lovely beaches; but again, you don't really get to enjoy them, with all that garbage lying around everywhere.

“Opportunity Wasted!!!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 February 2012

Absolutely no facilities at the Island. Take your own drinking water, food, umbrella, etc if you plan to spend a lot of time at the island.

The place has wonderful rock formations and is also good for collecting shells.
