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.

I enjoy going here, either by one of the local booze cruise/catamaran or by land. The snorkeling is good and for some reason, every time I come here I see something interesting, whether it be squid, a turtle, etc.

Just north of the major hotels and excellent location for snorkeling. Snorkeling is easily accessible right from the beach.

This is a great spot to snorkel and see some large school of fish. Not much by way of shade trees or huts but if you go early you may get one. Great spot to chill for a few hours.

Get there early and you can get shade. The tours start showing up early. Be sure to try and beat them there. Arrive by 9:00 at the latest. Bring your coolers for a great day. We brought bread along and the fish were practically jumping out of the water .
