The island is just so beautiful, resort and pools kept clean and taken care of. We loved all the wildlife on the island... kangaroos hopping around, beautiful birds and of course the gorgeous living reef. When on island, make sure to snorkel in the living reef, you will love meeting all the cool characters in the water! So thankful for the whole experience, would most definitely recommend.” Hanna
