It was a great feeling to see the uniqueness, beautiful white sand beach with clear water sorrounded the beautiful island, so amazing. I really love the place, we stayed overnight and I really had a great time.
If you are planning for a visit you must book early, you can contact someone who works in the municipal hall, someone does everything for you the one who is incharge (charges per person + gas for the boat) . When you come visit the island bring your own drinks, water and foods. There is no shops or store down there so you must bring your own stuff and everything will be find.
