Me and my husband got to snorkle around the island and then got to walk around the streets and see all the cool historical places they have. Each site has a description telling you a story behind it. MUST SEE!

The paddle was fairly easy although watch the water depth at low tide. Paths on the island are easy to navigate and very interesting stops along the way.

Clean, well-managed park with a nice shady walk through the abandoned coral quarry. Stop to see beautiful embedded fossils, and tree varieties.

It took about 45 minutes one way. We were a large group with some younger kayakers. It's about 0.8 miles, and (very!) shallow water.
