Several hours later, continue on to another bay, where you will swim in crystal blue waters or take some time to relax in the shade.

    Absolutely fantastic trip with Anis... Expertly handled the water as you'd expect even when it got quite rough, and was brilliant with our little kids 7 and 6. Helped them to fish, to snorkel, and let them think they were on the wheel at one point! The water by Dia Island was spectacular, the snorkeling/swimming there was a dream, and you have plenty of time, it actually goes really quick. If we didn't have kids, I'd say a full day might have been the better option. If you're on the fence about the trip, book it and you'll not look back... Brilliant all round.
