We stopped for a snorkel and it was fabulous. You can also reach the gardens by boat from the Sofitel also. I believe they charge $95 per day to go to their island on the Coral Gardens.

The gardens were impressive and just before that we swam with the sharks. Cannot beat that. The coral was colorful and it was easy to snorkel in the reef. Get a tour that includes the sharks, coral gardens, and a beach barbecue.
