The hike to the top provides the most beautiful view of the island and surroundings. There is also a beach where you can swim. The water is beautiful and the island is very clean. It was so peaceful here. I loved it!

we had the best snorkeling here but you have to attach your dingy to the moorings on the beach. the guide was very unclear about that and then we got in the way of aggressive kite surfers.

We've visited this island several times on boat tours in Antigua. It's very pretty with clear, calm, shallow water from the beach. Several tour companies offer a bbq lunch on the island with a hike to the top. There's nice snorkeling not too far off...More

No frills on this beautiful island, but if you are looking for off-the-beaten-path fish, lizards, butterflies and birds, nothing beats it. The island is small but people who are not steady on their feet will not be comfortable exploring it. If you want to get...More

One of the pretties places on our eco tour. The laughing gulls were watching their hatched eggs so there was a lot of noise and activity. Easy hike to top. The views were incredible!

Visited this island as part of a tour and were very impressed with the natural beauty and excellent beaches. The hike to the top of the island was somewhat steep (and over slippery rock) but well worth the views from the top. We also enjoyed...More

The hike is very short but steep with rock surfaces that at times provide minimal traction. Not a trail for those with any limitations. Beautiful views from the top make it worth the effort!

Mainly we stayed on the beach and just took a short walk up the hill. We did see a snake and caught it on video.
