There is a central area that can be snorkeled around with views of various tropical fish and coral. We always bring an underwater camera for video and photos.

The best way to enjoy this "park" is underwater. Take the glass bottomed submarine for 45 minutes and explore the reefs.

The coral reef is right off shore. It is surrounded by ropes to prevent swimmers from damaging the coral, but you can snorkel around it. Plenty of fish.

Soft sand, mild waves, beautiful blue colors. This beach stretches for miles. Easy to walk. Beautiful sunset when it's not cloudy.

This is a must do for snorkeling!! It’s free if you have snorkeling equipment but can be rented cheaply. We saw turtles, rays, and barracudas. It’s an underwater park with lots of coral for great viewing of fish
