Useful information [edit]

300 meters to the north of the Home Island there is a tiny Prison Island, which is an icon of a tropical paradise. You may just walk there at low tide. It's dangerous at the beginning of the outgoing tide, as water moving off the lagoon may bring you out into the open ocean.
