There is reasonable swimming in the lagoon is safe at all-tides although the lagoon floor is patch coral so reef shoes are recommended. There's also good snorkelling directly from the beach.

There's a freshwater swimming pool with floating sun-loungers, hammocks and sun beds, a BBQ area, library, tour desk plus laundry service. There's also an on site café and small grocery store around the corner.
