  • Everyone who snorkel s should visit this marine lake. It gives new meaning to clear water. The quantity and variety are unbelievable  more »
  • We also asked Sam's Tours to take us here on one of our kayaking snorkeling days. A great choice as even if there had not been any mandarin fish, this would have been one of our top travel experiences...  more »
  • 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.
