There is a story about this mangrove island about two local men who found some human remains here around the middle of the 19th century. Thinking it might be part of an Indian burial mound, they dug around looking for hidden treasures. Alas for them, all they found were broken pottery shards and more bones.
Ever since that day some locals believe the desecration of that burial ground has caused strange green lights to appear all around the island at dark.
The island is now a bird sanctuary, and human contact is strictly forbidden. Any investigation of the phenomenon must be from the water, and at a distance.
