Sensational place to snorkel and see the fish. Dives can be with professional equipment or just snorkeling for amateurs. The waters are calm, clear and super warm. The islands are really a paradise!

Perfect place to snorkel. Lots of marine life. There were quite a few tourist boats but that is to be expected during the summer vacations. Take bread to attract zillions of fish.
