This was the highlight of our two week holiday, we kayaked across (stopping to paddle on the sand bar) and then Fanny and Ozzy brought us a delicious lunch and drinks hamper. Perfect afternoon and I highly recommend it!

We had a great time paddling out to Pinel Island. On the way out we stopped by the little island to the right and got some great snorkeling in.

If I recall, there were a number of options. But be careful, the water was pretty choppy when we went. We were glad to have the double that day.
