This sheltered cove is a wonderful spot for relaxing, floating on a raft, and watching colorful fish swim below. The clear waters make it possible for you to see clear to the bottom!

If you are into snorkelling, this bay is a must go to. There are so many things to see under the water you can spend the day in the water. But it also has a restaurant and a very calm place for kids to swim.
