Nothing really special. 1000 (for youth) and 2000 (adult) admission fee. I wouldn't go there if it wouldn't be close to my guesthouse.Maybe it would be interesting for families with small children. But for a walk i would rather prefer going to the beach.

You can walk around under the shade of thick netmeg trees. Also, you can enjoy basking in the woods. The oldest tree is about eight hundred and fifty years old.
