See Turtles in their environment

I particularly like to snorkel and it was an uplifting experience to witness the turtles being fed and all the fish gathering for the leftovers. A truly magical moment.

Children 6 and 4 year old loved this beach - calm waters and not crowded. Boats etc wouldnt come close as the area is marked. We visited this beach area every other day during our 10 day stay.

The park covers a huge area and along most of its length runs a boardwalk broken only by beaches. Beautiful sitting areas along its length with some absolutely stunning views. Would highly recommend a visit if you are in the area.

Beach is lovely, very handy too to have the bathrooms/changerooms very close. The area for snorkelling is protected so no worries about watercraft (jetskis in particular). Large parking area too and friendly staff.

This Marine Park has a nice reef to snorkel and no worries about boat traffic and it is marked off with buoys. There is a cute clean park for children with play equipment. The beach is sandy and the water is warm and inviting.

Really nice beach to snorkel off, once you get a little bit further out. Also areas marked off by buoys so you can relax and not worry about jet skis flying past.

Really worth a visit for great snorkling, the water can be quite shallow and sometimes a little surge in waves but lots of fish
