Very quiet island but also a real lack of facilities and there are much better islands in Maldives to enjoy your hard earnt holiday . Only one restaurant which was well below average and boring with very limited options and a big left down for a Banyan Tree property No swimming pool a shock You can find much nicer for same money and we left early and went to another island which was a genuine 5 star for similar money
