The boat ride was only 20 minutes from the pier. From the shore you need to go up then down a steep and uneven rock stairway. You get to rest at a landing with a great view of the islets. Despite the challenging stairs, the lake was all worth it with clear deep blue water. In the shallow part, you could see the rocks and corals beneath. Snorkeling was okay. There was also a small cave in the lake with a very narrow entrance and we were lucky that our guide showed it to us...good for those who want a little added adventure.
