We loved watching the pelicans dive bomb the fish in the sea. Go find out yourself breathtaking. You can sit outside the restaurant and watch the sea and fishes go by. Well worth the visit and only about 30 minutes from hotel.

Late answer but, if you're coming from Montego Bay, it is the turn to the left after the Melia Braco Village resort. From Discovery Bay it's the right turn before the entrance to The Meliá resort. There are signs.
