If you are lucky you will meet dugong here. It came twice when we were there. There is also a big handicapped turtle with 3 flippers. This place is promoted as Turtles's house, but we haven't seen any other turtles except for the handicapped one.

The beach is clean and quite with little waves depending on the time of the day. However, the water was clear and it is a very good spot for divers.
