The island is worth it. The boat trip is short. You have to have 4-5 hours to travel through the marked paths, the entire island. It is better to bring sandwiches because the island only has one tavern that offers meals, but it is very small and always crowded. Drinks can be taken there.

We had a lovely time saw dolphins and swam to a deserted beach!! The manta rays in the harbour were amazing! Would definitely recommend for a relaxing and fulfilling sailing experience.

Beautiful boat, great crew and excellent value for money. Bit choppy but to be expected in this area. Very good lunch and plenty of options for water activities

Lovely crew members. All very helpful and tried their best to make the journey great. We had a fantastic time.

Lovely friendly staff, make you feel welcomed and get you involved in activities. All lovu experience.
