“All the wild wonders”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

We snorkeled here on three different tides: high, mid and low. It was a revelation each time with a great variety of small fish just meters from the beach. Further out there is some good coral too -- although it's bleached and dead further in. The visibility is excellent. The Japanese people cover up well in rashie's, tights, hoods and even gloves to snorkel here and I think it's a great idea, especially as you can easily stay in the sun too long or get too close to the coral in the shallow water. At low tide we made our way through a narrow channel to a deep hole near the inner edge of the reef. It was filled with small to medium fish and was like being in a big tropical tank.

“Great snorkeling spot!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

This is an excellent beach to do some snorkeling. You can rent all equipment at the beach. The coral reef is only meters away from the shore so you can just walk in the water and start spotting the most beautiful fish and shells!
