There was not many interesting activities on this island, except for stunning sight seeing of course. You can wander around and take beautiful photos and swim. Despite another beaches, here is not over crowded with tourists.

After spending time in several Southeast Asian cities, this was such a refreshing place to visit - so peaceful, quiet, and beautiful. It's also much cleaner than the cities. There is not a party scene at all, but it is a place for relaxing and...More

If you want to be the only one on the beach- this is the place for you. If you're looking for nightlife- not the place. Will need to stay a few days if you visit. We rented motorbikes and loved being one of the few...More
