“Too Crowded !”
Reviewed 24 February 2012

Just ok too crowded and a six dollar per person sur charge.We paid hansomely for our Boat to get there. They have a picture of Leonardo DiCaprio but i suggest you download one and go to numerous other swimming and snorkeling spots around the Island.

“Don't go when the main tourist boats hit”
Reviewed 22 February 2012

A beautiful place, but way way too many people at any one time.
Pick your timing go early or late and do it privately otherwise it's like Blackpool, well worse actually.
