  • What a site! Wouaaaah, full eyes! Beautiful... Really unavoidable. Do not hesitate to negotiate the price of the boat because there is competition on the beach

  • The Berecih designated as marine park is overrun by many tourist motorboats tagtöglich. Diue coral bleach ha thier already used and I think tourists and Botte do the rest. Who wants to see fish is right here. There are many big schools and small reef fish, but for coral reefs I would not go here. Also fly airplanes over the bay all the time

  • Best to visit during non peak days where the relatively small beach gets crowded. Every year the marine park corals get further bleached. Therefore as time goes by you will see more and more dead corals. I would recommend snorkeling (on a beautiful day) instead of the limited time glass bottom ride.
  • Beautiful, clear waters, but unfortunately the corals are mostly dead. Still plenty of marine life, and nice place for boating and wind surfing
  • A beautiful reef right at the shore. Very amazing for snorkeling, diving, or even a glass bottom boat tour. Very colorful and a high variety of corals and fish
  • Very attractive place. Should do glass bottom boat tour
  • One of the beautiful places to go out in s glass bottom boat and also snorkel over the coral. Watch the planes taking off or landing you can almost touch them. There are also a number of organised tours from Blue Bay where you are taken out for the day having a BBQ and seeing the island from the sea side a trip well worth making
