Liked the people and the food but was very disappointed about the cruse around the lagoon, the boat skipper picked a spot to go snorkelling, no way was I getting out of the boat when there was a raging outward tide, anyone in the water would have been swept into the open ocean in a short space of time.

Clear blue (so many blues) water, corals, clams, and so many fish, big and small! Loved swimming with the giant wrasse, but also the tiny fish of all kinds.

You have to go on a lagoon cruise, it is the most beautiful place on earth! We went to the cruise with TEKING and it was just great. We were only 6 people on the boat.
