  • Pretty good experience for a first timer. The restricted area to preserve the corals carried out very strict yet super friendly.
  • This trip only enjoy snorkeling and sea bath at Manukan island. Not many fish and the water is green and not so clear. But to swim and siting there at the beach while listening to the wave is another way to relax as well.
  • Poor snorkeling, roped off small area with very little fish and no coral you can go near. Plus full of large groups just making lots of noise. Much better places to go to
  • The water was so clear and the fish not run away when u come near them to see or to take video of them.. No rubbish and a lot of tourist go here
  • Limited sandy beach area and it does get quite busy with tourists. However still quite nice for a nice little stretch of beach very close to the restaurant and dining area. Little fishes can easily be seen just by walking along the jetty.
