Spent a Sunday there recently with 3 young children. I would recommend going early in the day as it did get crowded later in the day. I would also pay attention to the tide as apparently there is better visibility for snorkeling at low tide....More

It's a manmade reef, but the water is really clear, there are lots of fish, and, as it was windy when we visited, the rocks kept the water mellow. If it had been mellow in general, I would've wanted to also paddle around the island....More
