We spent a fun day diving here with Happy Dive Centre. And the zipline was scary but fun! (make sure you use one or both hands to cover the parts that count, when you hit the water)

No, not at all. You can simply look at the lagoon; you do not need to go in. There are a lot Of rocks so you can always stand on a rock with your feet in the water or near the waters edge if you want to get a picture... More
