  • If you like snorkelling this is definitely a spot not to miss! Crystal clear water, plenty (PLENTY) of fish with an amazing variety and there is even corals that are actually still alive! Too bad...

  • A really lovely beach with clear blue water. Unlike most of the other beaches, you can safely snorkel here without venturing too far out and still see colourful fish swimming about.

  • Camped here in winter. Even next to bushes, it was too windy. Swimming was wonderful though, with many colorful fishes. & it's fairly shallow till a certain point, so I felt safe enough. I've heard if you go too far out there's rip tide, so be careful.
  • Incredible Snorkeling around this area until the blue cave.
