Apart from few overpriced eateries nothing special about this location. If you want to have a feel of being on an island and take few photographs, should visit otherwise avoid.

The man in charge of tickets was awful. Even when the aquarium is open till 7 pm, he refused to give us tickets at 5:55 pm. We had a major brawl before the other shopkeepers intervened and compelled the man to give us the tickets.
