Stunning island for a day trip. Definitely glad we ended up going. The summit hike is straight uphill with lots of steep inclines and rock stairs. It's a pretty short hike but you have to be pretty fit with good knees. The view at the top is stunning and makes the hike worth it!

Breathtaking views and beaches, pristine waters, rain forests, all so lovely but the lustre was taken away when find out the island controlled by a private developer and to even use the bathroom facilities you had to pay a resort fee. Can't understand how this can occur right
