Great snorkeling here. The corals close to the shore are badly damaged but are healthier as you swim away. Many fishes can be seen and some sea snakes as well. Many jellyfishes can ruin the experience. Tubod marine Sanctuary near by is much more beautiful...More

Both of us really enjoyed this sanctuary. Clownfish, some pretty corals and easy access of the beach. Kids loved the multicoloured crabs at low tide and kept trying to catch them. Fun for all of us. Well worth the visit.

Love the sheltered nature and easy dive. Got some excellent shots on some super macro and macro subjects. Will try for some wide angle close focus again!

Perfect colours, the reef is untouched. We have seen seaturtles, a seasnake and lots of fish. The coral garden is in shallow water with a drop off down to about 25m.
