The weather wasn't the best on the day we went out as the water was a little dirty for snorkelling, but by staying in the shallows I was pleasantly surprised by the colour and amount of fish to see. Pretty place well worth the visit....More

Beautiful location and not too busy nor over developed. The park is well maintained (free from human impact and importantly rubbish) and the snorkelling / scuba diving is good and easily accessible

Crystal clear water on this island is ideal for snorkelling and swimming. With our day trip package we had complementary use of water trampoline and kids loved it. There is a resort on this island and I could easily spend a few days there. There...More
