Did a tour of lagoon with snorkelling in clear blue water seeing turtles and beautiful lagoon fish.Had lunch on an island which was a bbq style. Walked onto one foot island with beautiful white sand and gentle waves. Thoroughly recommend.

Went as part of a snorkeling cruise. Absolutely stunning setting. There are no facilities. It'd be nice if there was a bathroom and a few beach chairs.

One PCF the must spots of the lagoon. Offers some beautiful beaches especially if you cross the island. Drawback : a stop for all the cruises at the same time of the day

Make sure you take your passport with you to get a fun and quirky stamp for your collection. Send a postcard to prove you were there.
