    Great for kids, beautiful location, plenty to do ..or perfect for lazing on the beach, pool or bar. Some activities can be expensive for families but you work out what you really want to do and find fun elsewhere with bush walks or free sports gear hire (tennis, squash, table tennis, volley ball etc). Dolphins, birdlife were spectacular.

    All good. This is my 5th time to there. But I think the ferry fee is too expensive. And there is no waders for kids...

    Great island, lots of unique activities! Josh is great to listen to at the animal encounters and we had a great laugh with Tony & Travis on the ferry over. A brilliant mini holiday from start to finish!!!!
