  • Nothing special. If you like seashells though, then this ia definitely for you. They have a vast array of shell collections and the guide was very informative describing and providing you with a background of each of them. It's a pretty fun experience. Watch out for the mosquitos though! For some reason, this place is full of them.
  • One of the best stop to know more about shells from tiny to huge one.
  • Nice place with many shells, not the biggest place but I like it always buy some cheap pearls here
  • The place needs renovating and proper maintenance ASAP
  • Good to know different types of shells.
