Reviewed September 26, 2013

not so many fish this time, but the sea was choppy with strong currents (due to weather) but still sooo worth it :) great snorkeling and beautiful :)

“Picture Perfect”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

Perfect place to take photos! Clear warm waters are great for swimming and snorkeling. I thought the wildlife was lacking a bit..

“awesome spot”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

Stayed 6 days on muri. Excellent snorkelling. I'm nearly 50 and did paddle boarding, kayaking and swimming and just saying around. Great spot. Looked at other areas and not as pleasant

“Idyllic spot to spend time chilling out”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

Nice white sandy beach, ideal for sun bathing or reading a book in gthe shade of a palm tree. Very shallow here, good for wallowing in the water rather than swimming. Snorkelling also better around the corner at Fruits of Raro. Where reef shoes if "swimming" at Muri, as there is a lot of rock/coral/sea slugs in the sandy bottom. Warm water. Very safe for children.
Always something to watch - glass bottom boats, yachts, kite-surfers, kayaks. Idyllic area to spend time. Love it.

“Another must-visit”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

Crystal blue waters, quite shallow, some interesting snorkelling spots. Picturesque spot for photography, or sailing & kite-surfing.
