Sapi Island is not just among the most beautiful but it also has the best snorkelling site within the TAR Park. Other than the beach activities you also could do jungle trekking and the Coral Flier (world longest ziplane) that allows you to slide from Gaya Island to Sapi Island.

However be careful the rocks are slippery, few accidents reported.
