Took a day trip which was great, swimming was good, however not as clear as I expected. The weather had been quite rough so might account for this.

Its really nice! But there's lots of people. If you want to snorkel its not a problem. People don't seem to dare swim away along the reef, so the amount of tourists isn't really a problem. Enjoy!
