  • Nice view when you come out from cellular jail with varities of water sports active. Why not 5 rating is cost of each water sports is expensive. For maintaining it clean and beautiful must give 4+ rating
  • Very well maintained and clean place. Do not carry any plastic items over there bags will be searched. Ask your driver to stay in the queue to attain first or second boat. Boats leave and return in the same order. Carry enough water with you because water will not be available on Jolly Buoy island.
