Went here on a snorkeling trip booked at Emperor Divers. At one side there is a beautiful coral reef and at the other side there is a large seagrass area where giant green turtles go out for dinner.

Paying 5€ to swim with giant turtles! What an extraordinary experience! Arrive early because when many tourists arrive by 11 o'clock all the turtles will have swum away!

The beach is empty, snorkeling here is not very nice. We saw a big turtle here, but I've seen much better in Sri-Lanka, so... And yes, there is a chance to see sea-cow here, but we were unlucky :)

The snorkeling was fantastic. Great clean water and you could see all kind of fishes. You must go there with one of the boats from the Marina.

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...
