Coral Beach Nature Reserve was clean with lockers, washrooms, and a gift shop. Snorkeling off the pier was lovely. We saw many fish. The water was crystal clear.

The protected coral reef attracts many fish and the water is some of the clearest I’ve swum in. The views are awesome and one should allocate a few hours just to relaxing and looking out over the water. Snorkeling equipment can be rented and makes...More

You can rent flippers if you like. They are 10 extra sheckle. If you plan on being out for a while I would rent them. Plus the cost is so little you might as well get them.
