Nice location with easy access for an easy snorkeling. Directly on the beach. This is a good way to do something different and get nice pictures and memories.

Better than a catamaran. Beautiful coral and spend the day there. Don't rush. Take your flippers and snorkel. Very informative guide and seriously, good coral

A great place for snorkelling. It really looks like a documentary movie. Don't miss the opportunity. It was a part of a excursion we bough from hotel.

We went as part of a private tour. To get in and out of the water can be quite rough if it's a windy day. Lots of colourful fish and corals. They're close to the surface and are sharp so you have to be careful not to get scraped.
