I took my kids there and it was fascinating to swim with sea turtles. make sure to bring some squids to feed and attract those turtles, just DO NOT touch them, that hurts them actually.

I came here on a half day snorkeling tour. The beach here is quite nice and is quite good for snorkeling too. It's the perfect place for a final stop.
