800 people currently settle 2,4-kilometer territory. The island is also visited by travellers. A lot of them stay in bungalows, and it's the right decision bearing in mind rich flora and fauna around. Little Corn is well greened - palms grow even on the beaches. This is a perfect place to take a rest far from the hustle and bustle of the city - calm crystal clear water and a lot of coral reefs citizens - ideal conditions for snorkeling and diving.
