The Island also has a large group of turtles, because it offers an enormous area of seagrass and a group of mangrove trees perfect for nesting and hiding the eggs from any predators, i.e the falcon uses the dried wooden branches of the mangroves to build its nest and hide the eggs.
The coral pools around the island make it a great spot for snorkeling and diving. and to the northern-west of the island, there is a sandy shallow bay which offers a great resting point for the spinner dolphins, if you are lucky during the visit and they are not sleeping you will have a chance to swim with them.
