A lot of small colorfull fishes and corals with some of big fishes but expect to see any marine creatures. You can do snorkling too as the coral only 50 meters from the bech and the depth from less than one meter.

Love the atmosphere of the market and the bartering especially when you "pot" a bargain. Also the area as near the beach if you want to wander.

Much quieter than most of the other resorts yet only a short taxi ride away from the more built up areas. A chemist just a few yards away where you can literally buy any medications sun lotions etc!
