I think this once was a very nice place, and it still is to a certain extend. But tooany tourists and rip off will ruin this place very soon. Still worth a visit due to its lovely beaches.

Very small and cute island. The hopping island excursion is recommended. The beaches are beautiful, good restaurants and chill out places. I recommend staying there at least three days
