Was rather disappointed with the place as it is basically a place strictly for snorkeling as I was expecting it to be a place to be more educational since it is named as Marine Park. But it has rather clear and nice water where you can see lots of fishes as well as a few black tip fin shark swimming around. You didn't have to swim far to be able to see all those as most fishes do swim at even your calf/ knee level.

The worst part would probably be their toilet where the taps do not have water but there's big tubs filled with water (which we believe should be clean), for you to clean yourself up after snorkeling and washing hands.

Snorkeling was a total disappointment. Not a lot of marine life and no coral, it has all been destroyed by greed of the operators. The large numbers of visitors are not controlled and the amenities cannot cope with the large numbers i.e. the toilet/change room facilities overcrowded resulting in blocked toilets and the unbearable stench!! There is a desperate need for maintenance and clean up!
Would not recommend the visit. Unfortunately the human element and greed of the operators have destroyed what I could have imagined was a peace of heaven.

the lake is a serene place with an option to go and swim in it. I thoroughly enjoyed going to this place. The view to other island from boat is astonishing.

A place that was used to be filled with colorful corals and clean beach is now filled with rubbish floating around the beach and the surface of the sea , most of the corals are dead. Staffs at the island never even care to remove the rubbish from the area. It is sad to see to see how a beautiful island died before of human nature. I've been to this island 3 times(2~4 years apart).
