Was a really great day on Hong Island. From transport to lunch, everything was really great ☺️ The beach is almost as beautiful as Maya Beach, but it's not that busy by a long shot .! Be sure to walk up to the View Point, the view is amazing. I can only recommend the tour.!

We recommend! We booked the Hong Island trip with a kayak tour. It's definitely worth the couple of euros more. We had a great day. There was a lot going on on Hong Island. But luckily we had booked the kayak tour. A great trip. Gladly again
