Surely something to go to. The trip by boat to go to the reef was great and the sorkeling experience............. GREAT !! Never saw so much beauty beneath the sea before and I have been snorkeling in several places before. In 1 word: FANTASTIC !!!

I saw two du-gon from the boat my partner got lucky and snorkeled with him. I did snorkel with a lovely big turtle. A trip well worth taking with Colona Divers

The flora and fauna of this area need to be protected !!! We went on a trip (I dived and wife snorkelled) and I wish we hadn't ....there is only supposed to be 4 boats at any one time in the area...there were NINE !!!! Unfortunately (for it) the dugong did make an appearance and was subsequently bombarded by RIB... More

Good divest with a nice beach. I encountered a Dugong which I was told they rarely come to this beach. Spent sometime with it taking photos. Really nice Animal. My son call them Sea Grass Mower.
