Set foot on phantom island, enjoy a snorkeling tour

The phantom island is a crescent shaped sandbar that reveals itself during low tide. In addition to snorkeling and sea bathing, the “Fish Meadow” is a spot where you can relax and observe the colorful tropical fish and coral reefs. An instructor will accompany you for this program, so beginners and those who aren’t confident about their swimming can safely participate.
