Very relaxed day. Beautiful place to lazily swim in the most amazing waters. And many great things to do. I personally took the sea trek with rays and other fish. Stunning.

You don’t have to hardly swim. Water is about 5 feet deep or so. There are plenty of places to get out if you wish. There are plenty of public toilets around the whole park as well.
