We did snorkeling for 2 days by ourselves. This area is very safe to swim or dive. Pleas try yourself. There are some shops on beach to hire equipment for snorkeling.

This is managed by the government. Their rates are reasonable. Don't get cheated by the cunning brokers over there. Park your car in a safe place little far away and walk to the ticket counter. Some people try to offer you free parking but they force you to get their boats for a higher prices.

Most of the coral is dead due to pollution from the unregulated tourist boats, no sign of concerted efforts to protect the reef or the wildlife. Ignorant tourists seem to think it's okay to touch, manhandle and feed wild animals. I never knew fish ate biscuits, who'd have thought it?! Honestly. It was shocking and embarrassing to see tourists trying to outdo each other with Instagram pictures of themselves with sea turtles. Sri Lanka, your government needs to address this issue properly.

A few years ago the reef was awesome, full of fish and live corals. Now the Corals on the beach side of hte reef is all dead, due to the leaking fuel from boats. they only think of their earning. The LIVE, beautiful corals are still there beyond the reef where the boats do not take you often. But there are some places where you can just walk on the reef and appreciate a lot without destroying it with boat fuel.
