The BEST spot for snorkeling! I really don't want to tell you that because it's nice to have it all to oneself. Great corals, great fishes. Could spend hours out there and it's shallow enough to feel comfortable and safe, although I did get to see a manta ray! That was awesome! Please leave nature alone - don't pick up... More

We took the four hour sail/snorkel trip with Red Sail and it included a fantastic lunch, great snorkeling, a ship wreck snorkel and an open bar.

I liked this better than Baby Beach and much closer to the high rise area. We liked it so much we went twice during our stay.

Malmok Reef, just off the Malmok beach is a another great place to snorkel. All three locations are side by side and easily seen all in one day with a short walk and a great snorkel. We spent many hours in the water and saw all we wanted except turtles. This is one of those locations if you are an... More

I've snorkelled a lot of reefs around the world and this one has fish and starfish and the like - so plenty to see - just that for me it wasn't teaming with variety of species and coral. Visibility is perfect though!

Nice and easy, fairly shallow dive. Second dive of the day. Lots of different coral formations and types. Scorpion fish, turtles, stingrays, eels and Barracuda. Drift dive with about a 3 knot current.

We made two snorkeling trips here. Right off the main road and not too crowded. Walk right into the water off the sandy spot with your snorkeling gear, and within 5-10 feet off the beach, you'll be immersed in schools of small to medium sized fish. You don't realize how much are swimming around you until you dip your mask... More

As you drive up towards the Calif lighthouse before you come to Arashi Beach you'll notice a jagged coastline with small coves and little beaches in between the rocks. This is THE place to stop and jump in with your snorkel gear and have a look. Just a few feet into the pristine water and you wil be surrounded by... More

What a wonderful place to sit and watch the snorkelers. It was so nice to catch some sun and watch the family snorkel. You can stay as long as you want. When you take the boat trips, it's great but somtime limited.

The reef is well accessible from a small beach and via a set of stairs further north. Great place for snorkeling and diving. On a recent night dive we saw a giant pufferfish, scorpionfish, octopus and lionfish. As well as countless other, more common species.
