Giant waves in the winter make this an excellent spot for experienced surfers and for the rest of the year, crystal clear waters and a long strip of elkhorn coral create perfect conditions for snorkelling. Keep an eye out for bottlenose dolphins and hawksbill turtles, the reserve is home to a rich and diverse marine life. Food and drink is available.
