  • Beautiful sand bank in the middle of the ocean. No vegetation but you can enjoy the crystal clear water and the different shades of blue and turquoise. I took the day trip and boat ride to and from the Prison island, unforgettable experience.
  • I found this Sandbank amazing, where you can chill for a few hours on the sand and have a walk all around it. If you are going with a guide, which you should they will set up a temporary tent for you and prepare some delicious seafood for lunch. The water is so nice and clear, you can even do some snorkeling around, eventhough there isn't much to see Sue to the corals being dead, but it's still a sight nevertheless. Around 3 pm, all the Sandbank will be submerged with water due to the high tide from the sea and everyone needs to leave then
