Very nice lagoon! It looks like very nature spot from all the pics, but it might get busy. There are stalls around selling everything from drinks to ikat. Try to avoid weekends and public holidays, unless you want million selfies with locals :D

Been there with colleagues, the sky is blue and so the water. It's perfect day to see children jumping into the water just like professional diving athletes.
