Snorkel and swim at Isso Beach, which attracts visitors with its fine white sand, a rocky shoreline, and rich coral reefs. Be sure to stay within a roped-off swimming area to avoid the strong currents. In the summer, the beach features all the necessary amenities, including showers, restrooms, changing rooms, as well as food stalls, a cafe, and vendors selling snorkeling equipment. However, during the low season the beach is completely deserted and very windy. Nearby attractions include a cave shrine and a lighthouse.

  • The beach is beautiful, but we didn't find any fish while snorkling.
  • I wish I knew this place closed at 6 PM. They serve hot food like curry rice and taco taking from a truck and even have beach good to rent and life guards, change rooms. If you go to the rocks outside the beach area, I'm told there's good snorkelling for tropical fish! Tons of parking space! You can swim at your own risk after hours.
