  • What a beautiful island and the experience was one of the most memorable moments of our trip. We did a day excursion that included a catamaran with open bar, buffet on the island, and a speed boat...

  • Absolutely beautiful beach. the smell is horrendous though from so much trash and no one to clean it up. It's such a shame.

  • Isla muy linda! Very beautiful island. The water is is gorgeous. Once you arrive the food and drinks are free. Its quite large, so if you walk you can find a more quiet spot. I was hoping for some snorkeling, but visibility was 0, so i couldn't even tell if there was coral. Still a really chilled island to spend a day at. As they control how many people come on the island, make sure you use a reputable travel service to reserve the boat, as we were kicked on and off the boat several times and ber booked through Princess adult resorts.
  • Stunning island. White sands and crystal blue water. The coach trip from la romana is over sn hour thrn thr boat journey is long. They take you out a quarter of the way into yhe ocean on a dmall boat then transfer you in yhe middle of the sea to a catamaran.this was an experience. They had to hold the boats together do people voild be transferred and this took forever as they kept losing the ropes to hold them together. Once everyone was transferred it was a beautiful journey. Arriving at the island you get off into the water and they provide lunch. Uou can buy s pina volada in a pineapple for 10 dollars. Expensive but delicious. The sea is crystal vlear and the island is do beautiful. You come back on a deed boat so it's one journey. They do stop in then ocean do upu can swim amongst the star fish which is stunning. Its shoulder height waters. I can't swim and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience
