Loads of activities like shark / sting ray feeding, snorkeling,...

As soon as I reached the place I was mesmerized by its beauty. Transparent waters and amazing hospitality made my stay truly wonderful, the India cuisine in the 24 Degree restaurant was amazing. The amazing snorkeling trip in crystal clear water was to die for. A must go place specially for couples.
