What an experience..picking up mud from the ground and rubbing it on your face. They say this helps clear up your skin (I believe it), but no one tells you that the mud smells like sulfur! It's worth it though.

Have to get there by boat. Most local tours include this as one of their main attractions. The tour guides will descend to the bottom and retrieve mud that is brought back to the boat and everyone smears it on. You are meant to let it dry on your skin then jump into clean it off. Nice day at the... More

We came here because Jellyfish Lake had hardly any jellyfish and one lady heard good things about it. The whole group came and soaked in the water for about an hour. Everyone tried the clay mud yuck from the bottom and put it on for a facial. It was pretty stinky. It seemed like our skin felt smoother afterwards, but... More

This was an amazing place to snorkel. Fish n Fins was used to take us there among other great areas.

This was so much fun to do with all our friends after a day of diving and snorkeling. We had fun smearing this all over each other but be prepared it does smell. My skin did feel very soft after doing this. My skin did feel a lot softer

Well, I had not seen anything like this before. It is beautiful. Milky water, with rock islands all around. I want to go back there! We were there in 2011, but that year is not an option on this TA site.

A great place to visit, pamper your skin, smell funny and have a great time. Our Sam's Dive Boat stopped there after a day of diving and snorkeling. Since Jellyfish Lake was closed, we had this as one of our planned highlights. Video available on YouTube.

If you like being covered in white mud, look no further! I have to say, we went here more fort the pictures than anything else as the stop was rather short, but this bay is absolutely gorgeous

This is a nice place to visit, but enough to say "jump in, grab some mud, put it on your wife, take a picture and move on".

What a wonderful place the kids absolutely loved it. Diving into that blue water and bringing up loads of mud to rub all over us. Though it was a lot of fun one of our children dared the other to dip his chips in the mud and eat it. unbeknown to us he eat quite a lot and it upset... More
