As a consequence, despite the absence of any fresh water, the island supports a diverse flora and fauna. Sub-tidally there are seagrass beds over which small numbers of dugong (Dugong dugon), still to be found in the area, graze without threat.
Nowadays this island has become a weekend resort destination.
The island offers a beautiful beach and an unspoiled island to explore. the main attraction is an old fort made of mud brick (too bad that it's locked).
The entire sea area around the Island is very shallow, boat access is difficult and this has ensured that most of the Island remains quiet and undisturbed, creating a very effective wildlife sanctuary over the greater part of the island.
