Very scenic island with large reef in very good condition. Nice white sand beach too. Would have liked to stay longer than the 45 minutes allowed.

Excellent beach to relax, picnic or just snorkeling if the sea is calm or if it is not too crowded with boats.

This island is 20 minutes out from El Nido and frequenly the first stop on Tour A. The beach is inpressive and long and has some good coral around the cliffs of the 'helicopter tail' on the western end.
