Was at Kenting before I headed over to Green Island. Conclusion: Green Island beats Kenting hands down by far. Prices, people, environment and views are much much better. The only thing that has to be improved is the accommodation, as it’s either too expensive, or...More

It is a beautiful island and one you can circle under an hour. The lodging is limited to boarding houses or Airbnb type of accommodation. Not a whole lot of restaurants around, scooter rental is relatively easy.
