This uninhabited Tropical Island surrounded by pristine white sands beach is often compared to Whitehaven beach in the whithsundays (Australia).
You will don't find any cruise ship customer on this Island, the cruise ship crowds take the "Hop on - Hop off" and go to Duck Island. You can find 300 pers on Duck Island, and wait 1 hour to take the water taxi.

SIGNAL ISLAND reef is home to over 1300 varieties of tropical fish and 350 species of colourful hard ans soft coral.The reef is a protected green zone and has never been fished and therefore offers an abundance of large and rare marine life.
