4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2011

It is beautiful because it is so untouched. Very good for diving and snorkeling.

“full of rubbish”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2011

the area is sadly neglected and full of water bottles along the coastline. The water had poor visibility and entry is iffy so bring rock shoes to wear beneath fins. Need to be a strong confident swimmer didnt enjoy...little bird life..stagnant pools inland...but lots of land crabs !
