If you visit at low tide, you can walk out to the island across the exposed sandbar.

  • At the time of the low tide, the localpeople were walking and swimming, and they were looking for a leisurely time. Many people rent canoes from the hotel, and many families enjoy snorkeling around the island. I think that it is easy to go because there is almost no wave and the current of the tide. But for small children, life jackets are a must.

  • A rocky little island. Easy to walk to at low tide or to wade and walk to at high tide. Surrounded by blue starfish and sea cucumbers. Bring sandals if want to walk to the top. Some spiderwebs. I don't understand why more people don't stay at this area when it's more beautiful than the main strip, and cheaper.
  • The island is small but there is a trail with great views. When the tide is out you can wade through thigh high water all the way to the island from any point on the main beach. Watch for the spiders.
