  • Best to get here by boat, can cost 100b to drive up, though the road can be steep and hard even by bike.
  • Perfect snorkelling spot
  • A decent spot for snorkelling, but there was no sun, so difficult to compare with other places. The massive swarm of fish, which apparently is always there, is really cool. Water is not as clear as in Hin Wong Bay. We got there by boat
  • Beautiful!!! You have to visit this place at least once when you are on the island.
  • Fish swarm was there, but corals all dead.
