Whilst the journey there and back was a bit chilly the area is stunning and if you take the snorkelling option the coral and fish are beautiful

Stunning place to visit for the day. The trip was well organized and Mahyma itself is beautiful. Powdery white sandy beach,clear water. It was stunning! Had a lovely lunch and the option of snorkeling or relaxing on the beach. A truly wonderful day out.
