There is only one way to get to Pinel Island. You take a cab to where a water taxi takes you to the island. The location is near Orient Beach, so the cab fare should be pretty much the same. Sorry that I do not recall how much that is.

The island has a nice clean beach and some moderate snorkeling. There is a snack bar and you can rent chairs and umbrellas. The water is shallow, with a sandy bottom with some rocks, here and there.

It's a nice quiet place to visit. It does not have all the activities, restaurants, etc. that Orient Beach has. However, nudity is allowed, but if you stay near the main beach you aren't likely to see it. Most of the people there are cruisers, who tend to keep their clothes on.

The water taxi runs either every hour or every half hour. They'll tell you when you board.
