Went to the lagoonarium to snorkel and swim a couple of times. The young girls loved the clams and the fish. Be sure to wear water shoes and I would advise rash guards because there are lots of sea anemones on the floor.

I stayed at the St Regis. Their lagoonarium is on the grounds and is free to the guests. Amazing
