The 2.5 hour boat trip out was excellent. The island is pristine, water is exceptionally clear. Great deep wall dive with lots of sealife to include seahorses I've never seen. The dive masters and staff from French Kiss Divers was awesome and were always safe and knowledgeable on each dive. I did ten while there without a hint of incident.

Great place to relax between diving. The ocean is so blue and clear, and the beach is clean and relaxing.

One will not imagine that there will be an island situated at the center of a vast sea. It is not just an island; it has the characteristics of being a perfect one --- crystal clear cool water, white sand shore, healthy marine life, abundant coconut trees, clean environment, solar light posts, and only a few people. Going here from... More

The boat trip there lasts about 1,5 - 2 hours and costs 600 pesos, not including the entrance fee of 500 pesos. The place is worth visiting, because it is really beautiful but since there are many boats visiting the island every day, expect a lot of tourists.

Looking at the island itself is a wow experience. the beauty of the sky reflected on the sea or vice versa, and the trees, just so wow. Snorkeling is very nice and the kuya from our boat are too sweet enough to guide me and my friends on the better snorkeling site. Too bad the boat does not have life... More

The water and the view is fantastic - as is many other places in the Philippines. Walking barefoot is not recommended. A bit overrated in our view.
