Not the same Tortuga as featured in “Pirates of the Caribbean” (which is much larger and off the coast of Haiti.), the name means turtle and has been given to many islands because of their appearance. This particular tortuga is small and, similarly to many of its Pacific neighbours, offers world class, coconut palm fringed, sandy beaches and reefs suitable for diving, snorkelling and kayaking.

There is also an interesting interior with a tree top walk and cables to climb through.
