An amazing place to see coral, turtles and sea life. But they guides who you are forced to hire don't actually stop the boards of tourists trashing the corals or touching the turtles. Very frustrating to see dumb tourists damaging the eco system they came to see. The snorkling reserve is very shallow and therefore lazy tourist snorklers stand on the corals and sea plants rather than swim. I wonder how the damage can be reduced Sadly, huge amounts of plastic and other waste floating in the water. The local boats were chucking rubbish straight into the marine reserve. The reserve can hopefully work to educate local people and provide waste collection points.
One of the few most amazing places on earth!
