Most tours of the Rock Islands stop at this place for everyone to lather themselves up with lime. Worth a half hour as part of the Rock Islands tours.

If you do the tour, make sure to ask for a stop here. Try to time it when there are not as many boats there (your captain or guide should know how to do that). No visibility in the water, but the lagoon is a beautiful milky blue with the clay being a supposed skin treatment. Even if you are... More

I'm glad we did it as it was park of a kayaking trip but wouldn't go out of my way to see it. Best part of tour was seeing a few jellyfish.

A twenty to thirty min stop only. The bay is pretty the white mud is fun esp for confident swimming kids. They will love it. Basically what you do is........

We went here as part of rock island tour with IMPAC tour. Our kids wore floaties we took with us and came in the water with us. They had kid life vests but they were still too big for our 2 year old. (Aged 2 and 4 years). So unique and beautiful!

We went here with our 2 children 7 and 5 year old. You can swim here can't see any sea life as it is very muddy. The mud at the bottom is supposedly very good for the skin. Do try it not be warned it does smell like rotten eggs (sulphur effect). Fun for kids swimming in here. The place... More

A must visit when you go to the Rock Islands. The mud underneath the ocean is white and milky and it's fun to just splash it on your body and see how it feels. Not it's not a snorkeling site so you won't see any fishes or corals.

Make sure you cover your skin with the muddy water. It feels really soft after you rinse your skin off. You will look 10 years younger.
