We had just hopped off the ferry and set up our campsite at the nearby Gite Nataiwatch and so, hot and ready for a swim we went down the track to the beach and found the most beautiful white sand bay. The water was perfect for swimming and snorkeling, especially out over by the rock-island. There are quite a few... More

We visited on the Rhapsody and after walking up Pic N'Ga came back here for a swim and snorkel. It was very special to be able to snorkel all the way around the island and see different underwater landscapes all the way around. Plenty of places for kids to play and even with a cruise load of fellow snorkelers, there... More

It was pouring with rain when the Spirit anchored. We decided to still go a shore. We were again welcomed by locals singing and dancing even in the rain. As you leave the tender wharf and head up the road to the left you have some market stall. Nothing special to buy most things were made in China not local.... More

a pretty nice bay with pretty good snorkelling - it does get packed when a cruise ship comes in as the drop-off is right next to it.

The Kanumera bay area is a favourite with the many cruise ships that stop here for the enjoyment of guests. There are many people on the beach enjoying the swimming and snorkelling and we had some good family fun. A cricket match started on the beach and bowling from the water onto the beach and fielding in the water had... More

Island is the best of the group, snorkelling is superb - do not climb the large rock in the bay as this is extremely disrespectful to the locals. The markets are the most expensive from all of the islands . It has always been the highlight of our many cruises for swimming etc , however we leave our wallets etc... More

One of the best island beaches I've seen. Close to perfect. The only downside is the crowds but walk a bit and you can find a small piece to yourself. The setting is superb - a lovely wooded rock island seperates two bays - each beautiful on their own. The water is that dreamy turquoise. Behind the bay is a... More

Amazingly beautiful despite the weather, a little windy. Snorkelling around the sacred rock is an experience but due to tourism increasing and tourists not considering the environment it is very visible that the coral is being damaged! For a quiet swim or reflection go over the road and walk to your right on this bay, pristine aqua waters protected from... More

What a beautiful spot. The water was the most amazing colour and so clear. There were lots of people enjoying the spot at the time we visited but it was still enjoyable.
