I don't have much more to say about it. It's a charm of village and I am afraid this review will open the door to a swarm of tourists like me. Leave it be. If you go, you'll get sad when it's time to leave....More

A nice remote settlement with several places to stay if you can afford the transport to get out here. A single dive shop in operation, a good dive spot close to the shore and several homestays dot the island.

What a beautiful little island. It was Sunday so no one was around but we walked the length of the town and were amazed at the landscaping and the sweet houses.

This was great diving. Lots of coral under the jetty. This place had several very large clams. The village was a cool place to walk around and they had a bathroom! We also did one night dive near here.

Excellent diving under the jetty, also great for snorkeling. Beautiful place for a surface interval. Lovely little village, beautiful beach, little shop, and a few homestays. It's a wonderfulplace to spend a few nights if you have the time.
