The lagoon has rocky outgrowths and some rocky "islands," so getting into the water was a slow and steady scratch-free process. The sand bed was rather squishy beneath our feet, and there was no one to consult about crabs. The water was warm and pretty clear once you swam further into the lagoon. There was a bit of a cold undercurrent near the lagoon's island, but nothing to alarm weak swimmers.
There were many colorful, and not-so-colorful, fish swimming about. The deeper the water, the more there was to see. We spent a good deal of time snorkeling. Had it not been for the 3km walk back to the bus stop, we would have stayed even longer.
