Isla Yani


Yani Island 


Yani Island, beautiful and less crowded, is a newer island. White sandy beaches and clear water surround the small island that offers camping, shared and private rooms. Yani Island is located close to La Piscina Natural (natural swimming pool) and is also known as “lobster islands” since lobsters are caught close to the islands. Lola, the resident parrot, is there to welcome you to the island.
