A lovely beach where we anchored and got off the boat to go snorkelling. Coral near the rocks but otherwise sandy under the water. We saw a turtle which was amazing - apparently there are a lot here. Lush.

Although this place is difficut to access if you don't have a boat, (I have one), it is a little gem. Water is cristal clear and I had the chance to swim with sea turtles there.
