great day on this little island. the beach is pristine and cocktails brought down to you straight to your beach chair. little boutique for some shopping and the ferry ride takes only 10 min. plenty of parking on the ferry side.

There is a dock on the shore across from Pinel. It’s $12/person round trip. There are also kayaks available to rent if you want to do that.
