We took a private boat there. The waters are clear and the sand is lovely on this sandbank just off the coast, not measuring more than probably a couple of hundred metres long. It was very busy though, which not only made it quite noisy, but meant a lot of rubbish was being blown in to the sea. We went snorkling but the coral appeared to be dying/dead and there wasn't a great deal of fish to see sadly.
Awesome, went there at around 4 pm and left 2 hours later. Definitely a recommendation. Looks like paradise.
