Take a snorkeling tour to fully appreciate the colorful coral and aquatic life offshore. While the beach lacks fully developed tourist infrastructure, you can grab a meal at the nearby restaurant. Wear shoes suitable for walking on jagged rocks that cover much of the shorefront, and look out for the occasional spiky creature on the sea floor.

very nice and inexpensive place to spend 3-4 hrs. you can go here with the bus tour that takes you around the island but you only get about 30 minutes to swim/snorkel with the fish. both goggles and life-vests are available to rent for about $2 USD each. super affordable and fun. take bread with you to feed the fish so they come to you.
Cool place to enjoy the afternoon. Fun to swim with all the fishes and feed them.
