Not nearly as crazy dense as Bermuda (about twice the size of Manhattan or 1.5 the size of Disney World (thank you Wolfram Alpha) with only 100,000 people. Mostly full island but didn't feel densely populated at all. I liked the colorful but subdued tropical style of the houses, each island seems to have its own palette (less precious than Bermuda).
Most surprising fact was that most of the supermarkets were quite large and all had Chinese names.
We weren't able to pinpoint just when that happened. Diving was some of the best we've been.
