Amazing place, lots of fish life although coral quite limited. Saw jumping mobula rays, a couple of bull sharks and large schools of fish, including a school of the biggest jacks I have ever seen

Snorkelling is great and no boats or groups required. Head to beach a few miles south for easy access. Dirt roads can be rough but fine if you slow down. We had a Jetta rental and no problems. Great spot. Have fun.
