After swimming at Starfish and Luli islands, the last stop was Cowrie Island. All of us were tired that we just wanted to take a shower and use the restrooms.
I think there were 2 buffet restos and because it was afternoon already, plates and utensils and trash were all over the place. We found a couple of chairs and sat in the shade and took turns using the restrooms. Water was not strong enough for showers, so we had to wait until we got back to our hotels. The toilets needed an upgrade.
The bar was a welcome treat, we needed drinks so bad. They served colas, beer, juices and mixed drinks.

Great island for hopping. Though locals selling photo stop using your own camera. It would be nice if there's additional refreshment stores like sago't gulaman or halo halo. :)

This island has a spa and bar. Most people who go here doesn't really swim, instead they hit the spa or order some drinks in the bar. Their fruit shakes are very refreshing!

Now, this is where to swim if you are an adult and of course with your cute little ones (attended). Toilet/showers are clean. If you are into sunbathing, here's the place for you as well.

During our island hopping this is my favorite beach drop. The island was so nice and has lots of trees. You can swim, dine, and play.
