What an amazing place... The locals were so friendly... There is a must do here - if you trek up from the port, through the trees you will find a small ⛪church... Walk past the church on the right will take you into the bush... Follow a bush track and you will find a cave where fresh water comes out of the mountain... Here you can jump into the darkness into a natural pool... A must see and do for all... Found this out by going to the Comedy show on the boat and the comedian mentioned it - followed the comedian to the swimming hole...

Fantastic little island. Locals run a small market and stalls scattered throughout. Coconuts and drinks for around $3 AUD or 200 Francs. Very warm but the waters are crystal clear and blue. Walk up to the church on the mountain was worth the views - it's quite steep so take your time. Jinek Bay is without a doubt some of the best snorkelling I have ever seen. $15 AUD payable at the Bay - only allowed 100 people at a time so get there early. Don't wear sunscreen as the coral is protected just cover up. Reef shoes and snorkel gear are a must and if you have a GoPro it's worth the videos and memories.
Lovely little island :) enjoyed the walk up to the Church - so gorgeous up there. Beaches are lovely, remember your reef shoes and a mask and snorkel.
