This beach is absolutely busy and packed with visitors but it is definitely a good place for snorkeling. It is very rich with flora and fauna and we had our lunch here during one of the island hopping trips.

This was where our island hopping paused to have our buffet lunch. Although the food was not really nice, we managed to see the locals on their natural state. It was fun and relaxing for us to stay here, even for a while.
