A desolate nuance may hit you when you have arrived at the island. There is a small pier near to it. The condition isn’t quite good, though. The color has tainted and it seems fragile. Despite these weaknesses, you can feel a peaceful ambiance. Some boats are seen on the beach. The sand is soft and brownish. In the back, there are dense trees so you can explore them freely. When it comes to the water, it is calm and deep.
