Good snorkeling. It is lovely to swim or snorkel around the island or better yet use a kayak. Great fun!

Gorgeous beach and crystal clear turquoise water. A wonderful island just of the beach is a great place for snorkelling. The most serene spot on the island you may just stay on the beach for your entire visit.

The bay is very sheltered and has a long, clean beach. An rock island sits in the bay and has small amounts of fringing reef with an assortment of tropical reef fish as well as coral snakes.

We hadn’t heard much about Kanumera Bay and it wasn’t very touristy in July. When we found it though I was just blown away and can safely say it was one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been. Unfortunately we didn’t have a snorkel...More

This place was our favourite spot on the whole Island. The whitest sand and the bluest water, all with a sacred rock set in the middle. You can go and explore a little around the front of the rock from land (but don't climb is...More
