Snorkeling : the beach is right in front of the villas and opens on the calm lagoon waters. 20 meters away (60 ft), there is a drop off, home of many sea species, which lets you snorkel in full safety among the fishes only a few dozen yards from the Villas. There are no big waves because this place is very protected in the bay, so this is excellent for snorkeling and for children!
