Shallow waters 10m out. That explains why most of the corals are dead near the beach. Crystal clear water. You can see the bottom even when you are kayaking! Managed to see the graceful turtle when I was there. Many fishes too, congregating at the...More

This is a great place to see sea turtles, but other than that it doesn't have much to look at, not much of a reef to speak of.
