Just like the Shimizu Island of the tour A, Star beach is another fantastic snorkeling spot. You can enjoy first the deep-water wonders while your guides are preparing your lunch.
Boats will stop in front of huge rocks and limestones only until then you will see the opening to the Secret Beach. In order to get inside, you have to swim through a narrow gap. Not much activities inside but you get to enjoy the view surrounded by tall, dark limestones.
Known as Shrine of the Blessed Virgin, a sacred monument built over 30 years ago is a best spot to take a picture of the aerial view of the sea.
