  • A fantastic place for snorkelling, free diving, and scuba diving. Best to go very early in the morning on a week day. Good luck parking. You have been warned.
  • One of my favourite places to visit when in the area. Crystal waters make for good snorkeling and diving, with an abundance of fabulous sea life. Often sheltered from the wind, the beach is popular and safe too. And look for water dragons as you take the scenic walk.
