There is a large two bedroom guesthouse, a self-contained manager/caretakers house, separate staff accommodation for up to eighteen and a huge maintenance shed. The buildings are Balinese style with plenty of exposed timber and dark tinted glass The sea surrounding the island is the ultimate playground for game fishing, diving, yachting, everything aquatic and there are several safe moorings for boats up to around 60 feet off the front of the property. A great super yacht anchorage is in the bay opposite and is visible from the property but don't expect to see many boats as they are few and far between. The island is available on a walk-in, walk-out basis including boats, toys and all furniture and equipment.

A tropical island for sale of this massive size is a rare find. Six Hundred and Eighty Four (684) Hectares (1690 acres) of land and literally kilometres of coastline with hundreds of metres of sandy beaches - this creates an amazing opportunity for someone seeking space for commercial activities – or to ensure their privacy. Hundreds of coconut trees from bygone days provide the archetypal tropical backdrop and the flat terrain gives plenty of scope for a private airfield. The local international airport is less than ten kilometres away with town just 2 or 3 more. The east side of the island boasts ocean views to other islands across the strong coral outcrops that protect the foreshore – venture a little deeper and you will find world class diving only metres away. Further out to sea are some of the local fishing grounds that provide a seasonal rotation of mahi mahi, yellowfin tuna, dogtooth tuna and wahoo with marlin for those seeking the really big catch. The west side of the island faces into the sheltered waters of the bay and here there are hundreds of metres of sandy beach and shallower coral outcrops ideal for snorkelling and exploring. The potential here is only limited by the imagination of the beholder. If this is for you come and visit for yourself.
