This is a large area, very popular for diving. We went on a submarine tour and the coral was really amazing. It is supposedly a good snorkeling place, but the corral mountains are very high, so in order to see them to full effect, maybe better to go either diving or on the glass bottom submarine tour. the water on...

Nice warm see with a lot of underwater life. We saw many kinds of fish, two friendly turtles (one with three legs only), but were not so lucky to see the see caw.

if you want to increase your chance to see dugong or turtles ,you should go there.But other than dugong and turtles (if you lucky), there is nothing to see.I saw dugong there .I also saw very very large turtle which came to very shallow area.

Wonderful reef, and was fortunate to see plenty of life, including a Sea Cow (Dugong) from the surface having just exited from my dive!

I had the chance to swim with 3.5 m Dugong twice and with 1.5 m turtle. Hit the beach after 3:30 PM when the ships leaves. Follow the grass and search for Dugong. If you are more than one, split up to increase the probability. Dugong came to the beach to eat every day from 3:30 pm to 4:30 PM... More

We were able to see a sea cow and sea turtle on this trip - but I understand from the lifeguard at our hotel (Concorde Moreen) that the sea cow and sea turtles will often go to its beach. Therefore, I do not know if the extra money for this trip was worth it - but it was nice.

You can see more under water life and fishes here than at most hotel jetties. Dugongs and turtles are to be found here. The beach is good for snorkelling due to shelter of the bay. However remember to take life-jacket with you.
