It's worth spending a day here for the white sand beaches and snorkeling. There's a great beach bar too. We loved it!

We took the catamaran to the island through Calypso cruises. It was a great day. The staff were helpful. The guide was friendly and attentive. The food was good, but not great. Couldn't see a lot snorkeling because of the water was choppy. They had a private area for the group that was comfortable. The beach chairs they provided were not comfortable but you can purchase lounge chairs with umbrellas. It was one of the best tours we took on our vacation. It's worth it.
Decent snorkeling but amazing views. Gorgeous weather. Beautiful sandy beaches. Be aware that there are no bathroom facilities on the island, as that can make things tough. Change and take care of business before you head over. Just a short 10 minute ride by boat from the reserve. Lots of iguanas and reptiles running around, beautiful coral and drift wood washed ashore.
