It's a manmade reef, but the water is really clear, there are lots of fish, and, as it was windy when we visited, the rocks kept the water mellow. If it had been mellow in general, I would've wanted to also paddle around the island....More

My children (grown) and grandchildren love this park. Next time, we will bring the dog! A lovely way to spend an afternoon. Bring your own beach equipment, towels, and food. Plenty of places to picnic. No refreshments available at the park. Bathrooms are available.

Love this place. Short and pleasant ferry ride. The beach is beautiful. The snorkeling is fun. Definitely we'll go again. Bring water shoes, though. It was a bit Rocky, and there are a lot of shells on the beach and in the water.
