This beach was the most beautiful beach I have ever seen! The water is crystal clear warm and teeming with fish. The sand is white soft and easy to walk along, the palm trees shade the beach so you don't get too hot or burnt.

We loved the snorkelling and beach. So many stunning photographs and the snorkelling against the wee island was great. An absolute highlight of our travel. This is the beach from the Oure Tera Hotel and is a cruise ship favourite for good reason.

Beautiful bay with clear waters and safe, easy snorkelling. Plenty of fish to sea but some obvious coral damage caused by the local boats who moor here overnight. They tend to come into the bay at speed, late afternoon, so stick closer to the rocks...More

This is a great little bay for snorkelling in and really handy if your staying at Kou Bugny hotel as it's just across the road on the other side of Kuto Bay. It can be open to a little bit of wind on some days....More
