Fantastic place to stay for a few nights or just visit for the day. We were first time snorkelers and you couldn't keep us out of the water once we tried it. The various island tours are good too but don't expect a huge area to explore as this place is small. The included meals were of good quality and variety and the additional cafe food and drinks were reasonably priced. Expensive to stay but if you are holding on to travel $'s saved by no overseas travel at the moment worth considering.



If you can get the pennies together for this place its well worth it. Stayed for 3 nights and the island was a paradise. We did everything we could here as lots of activities. However you must have a keen interest in the coral cays and snorkelling. Snorkeling was incredible saw so many huge loggerhead and green turtles. Cute little eco units and Reef rooms. Reef rooms have an ensuite but eco units are not connected to neighbours which I think is better. Expensive but worth it, even the sea plane to the place was awesome.
