  • This place is spectacular. Mandarin fish are very rare to see. The snorkeling area is located at the entrance to a cave you can dive. With the trained eye can be found the 1 to 2 cm big fish. In addition to the Mandarin fish hats still more other photo subject as file fish, snails etc.

  • 这是个七彩鱼的世界,在阳光照射下,鱼身通体发亮,色彩斑斓,煞是好看。假如是不会游泳、水性不好的,也能浮潜。就身穿救生衣,一手抓巨大的漂浮板(有专人牵引),一手用潜水相机照,下潜30米都能用,效果非常好!  more »
