The museum is nice and the clams in the shallow water are only ok. The deeper water has so many corals, fishes and of course the giant clams which make it totally worth it!

We enjoyed the small chldren (ranging from 8-12 years old) explained what to expect of the place. Very impressed on how they explained the scientific name of each shell fish, its habitat, how they reproduce, etc. We were totally impressed that they spoke good english.

This was one of the highlights of our holiday. It was really educational, but the best part was snorkeling around the bay. The entrance price, which is very reasonable, includes a snorkeling guide. We saw lots of different fish, coral and the giant clams. The...More

Our recommendation is to hire a local with a motorbike for a day to give you a tour around the island. They are usually parked in the airport.
