Beautiful water colors. Lots of space on the water. Inside the reef flat to choppy and shallow, but ridable almost all the time. Booties recommended, since you don't want to step on animals or corals. But also possible to ride without. Outside the reef small rollers, can be flat in between. Many places to be discovered in the area. Look out for snorkelers who sometimes swim around the reef. And also look out for turtles
