Beautiful lagoon. There are 2 uninhabited islands within the lagoon that belong to the main island where you can walk over or just grab a kayak to get there. You can see dozens of sting rays and hundreds of fishes.
Great place. Very nice and helpful staff. Good food.
2 daily snorkeling trips free of charge to different locations. You can swim with dolphins since a huge colony is living there at the entrance of the lagoon! You can see them every day playing there. We'll go back sometime for sure!
