The island is less than a mile (around one kilometer) wide from east to west and less than 200 yards (183 meters) from north to south. It has a population of 38.
The east end is the center of recreational activities with beaches fronting a coral basin where manatee, rays and numerous fish can be seen. There is a rocky inlet on the north side of the island large enough for the cruise ship tenders to operate from. Nature trails run the entire length and width of the island.
