This was great. There are a lot of clams, some of them are massive and some of them have incredible patterns, It's just the right level of difficulty: easy enough to find but you do have to actually swim out and look for them. It...More

Great place for a quiet relaxed snorkel, especially for novices... colours and sheer size of these clams is incredible. Take cash for the privilege to swim and to park. There were kayaks for hire too, would make for a great afternoon in the sun.

Beautiful spot and very easy snorkel to see the clams. Don’t need fins and can hire mask from the locals. If you want to see giant clams up close it great, but don’t expect much else
