The perfect option for the 'no news no shoes' holiday. We offer the best of our most valuable asset - nature, in all its abundance. This is the perfect picture of the tropical island haven - the image that almost always comes to mind. A small, almost circular island, about a quarter of a kilometer in diameter, the island is covered with lush vegetation and crowned by tall coconut palms. No wonder the atmosphere here is cozy and intimate. Right round the island the beach is of the finest white sand one can imagine. Lying on the beach listening to the tiny waves of the shallow blue lagoon gently caressing the sands, accompanied with the pleasant music created by the rustle of the palms, one can simply blend in with nature.
