Large Natural Coral Reef:
Snorklers, and divers will be happy to hear that there is a large coral reef that runs parallel and quite far off shore (approx. 160m off shore). This large coral reef naturally protects the bay from the strong waves during high tide, making it calms & safe for swimmers. Beautiful coral pools can be explored during low tide and plenty of shells can be found.
