A small saltwater lake is also located inside the reserve, created specifically to allow visitors year-round swimming and fishing opportunities in safe waters. You can also explore the offshore coral reef, a rich underwater world of protected marine wildlife. A large children's playground and barbecue facilities are provided for visitors planning family picnics in this spot.
