Wife and I went beachcombing, wading in the East China Sea and finding all kinds of seashells. It was difficult choosing which were the best "keepers", there were so many choices. There were also interesting rocks, polished by the ocean before being washed up on...More

Not worth, no coral, some little fishes can be seen from underwater tank. The tank is very small. You may spend only 10-15min here.
