Loved this place, once you've seen the Giant Clam go snorkelling around the rest of the bay, visabiltity can vary depending on how much fresh water mixes with the salty water, but well worth the mission

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.
