This location was recommeded by many, but I think its best days are long gone. There are several companies which bring several high-speed catamarans here, and drop off a huge crowd on the narrow stretch of beach. There is really no place to go inland....More

Good for first timers. As first timers, we were excited to see the many different species of fishes swimming just next to us. The yellow ones are the ones to watch out for as they'll stare at you in the eye and nibble at you!...More

This is a great trip by boat from Kuah, approx 45 mins by speed boat and 1.5hours by ferry. It is a must see as the waters are prestine, and the snorkelling is very good. A nice day trip.

Manage to catch the view with many fishes. Because the other snorkellers were feeding the fishes. There's even baby shark swimming close to us!
