The waters although sometimes inhabited by crocodiles, are a great place to swim. Warm and clear water with excellent facilities, this is a favourite of the locals and should not be missed.

It was a great way to spend the day. There were a lot of other people there though. If you are not a confident swimmer it is best to take some sort of flotation device as it is deep.
