This is not an activity as such. Just the sight of the Floating Rock and the Mountains will woo You. The Place is Clean and very Scenic.

I was there in the last week of July. Winter!! Beautiful sunshine, warm water, lots of swimming. I guess summer may be hotter and more humid. Coming from the UK, I think their winter will be beautifully warm for you.
