“Very clear water and easy access”
Reviewed 9 July 2012

I joinned a snorkel trip of Aquapopo. We snorkel at the boat. There are many many fish around the area. After the 1-hr snorkel trip, we arrived Minna Island (by boat, not swim to the island of course!!). The sand of the beach is not fine at all, but the water is extremely clear. After the 1-hr snorkel trip, we've taken a lot of good underwater photos, therefore, we were too lazy to swim again near the beach side. When it's about time to leave, we swim to about 20 meters from the beach, just more than 2 meters depth.... Finally, we understand why people keep snorkelling near the beach side ... you will know the reason when you see the photos I uploaded ....

“Great Place to Spend A Sunny Day”
Reviewed 19 March 2012

For a photographer or explorer to spend the day, other than the short ferry ride to the island, everything is free. It is a small, quiet island and has beautiful beaches and plenty of water sports equipment available for rent. There were many tourists on the beaches and in the water and it appeared they were having fun. Getting off the beaten path to photograph birds, flip flops were comfortable. The island isn't large enough to get lost on. Residents were friendly, helpful and some small Mom and Pop operations served delicious food at reasonable prices. There were plenty of seabirds available foir the camera enthusiast and, I will return this year to have another great day in the sand and sun.
