You need to go early for the parking lot will get full easily. Not crowded when we were there. bring food and drinks (non-alcoholic) to the beach. It's a little pricy and the selection is not great at the mini cafe. You pay $7.50 to get into the bay, and you have to watch a mandatory video. Take the All day unlimited tram ride to go up and down the bay. it's a longgggggg walk down and up. two bucks is well worth it. There is not enough live corals left, but you can still see the fishes. Kids loved it. I snorkeled for the first time and love. it. It's a must to see.
