Not worth being called a national Park. Dirty, full of plastic bottles, garbage,... and only one small piece of beach you can actually sit on. Full of people.

Small beach, limited area for snorkelling. Clear water can see fishes by bare eyes. No sea sport for this island

The island is beautiful, but unfortunately plastics are making an impact on snorkelling activities. Friendly place with a fantastic lunch that only 1 in our group of 15 could finish.

You can do discovery dive, island hopping, sunbathing, picnic, eat or just walk around the island. It’s really very nice scenery to look around

For the zip line not too sure. Snorkelling gear you can rent on arrival at Sapi Island. There is a ticket kiosk as you get off the boat. I am sure they will be able to advise on zip line tickets. Lockers available too.
