If you’re planning to go from the one side (where the turtles are) to the other (beautiful beach), wear proper footwear, not flip flops like we did. It took us approximately 40 minutes to cross the island and the heat was unbearable, but when we...More

We went with a rubber boat to the island, therefore we landed just at the beginning of the sand. A bit of wet feet. Not really difficult other than to jump out of the rubber boat with the help of the other people.
