Snorkeling was amazing! There were fish everywhere and we swam with 7 baby sharks and saw one larger shark, eeek! The beach was somewhat disappointing and quite small. There wasn't much space on the beach to lay out and relax, it was way too crowded and had a lot of trash. I personally wouldn't pay to do this tour again despite all the fish we saw while snorkeling. Bathrooms there were disgusting and didn't even have running water!
We took the Coral Island tour and paid 90 ringit per person. Once we boarded the boat we literally sat there for ONE hour just waiting to leave. They really know how to waste our time which was really frustrating. They also charge you 20 ringit for "renting lockers" which are equivalent to plastic bins.
