    This research centre for the conservation of giant clams and corals is located within the resort. The work done to propagate the corals and giant clams is interesting. Its a small centre and would take only an hour to view the video and exhibits.

    Maybe it isn´t enough interesting for a week, but for few days i think it will be. I definitely recommend for you to visit in Pulau Gaya resort aswell. There will be more activities for children and there is also a big beach.
