The beach is great and the views stunning. We went snorkelling and although there is some damage, it was still great. A bit of a current, so just make sure you are up to it. Mostly rocky, with piers taking you in, but there are...More

From the yellow sand beach you can swim in the aqua water and snorkel out to coral or take a glass bottom boat to view further out into Blue Bay Marine reserve. A lovely park with huge shady trees is above the sand.
