Seafood lovers can feast to their heart’s content on fresh lobsters, prawns and other seafood dishes prepared in a myriad of ways. A variety of fresh tropical fruits too are available to try out!

Go Snorkelling

Spending some time snorkelling in the crystal-clear waters of Rawa is a must do the activity. Or simply get yourself a floaty and spend a lazy morning drifting about by the shallows. Do remember to wear plenty of sunscreens, a hat and sunglasses while constantly hydrating yourself to keep cool.

Play sports

Burn some calories in a fun way by playing a game of beach ball or volleyball with your fellow travellers or backpackers. Alternatively, you can head for a long romantic walk by the beach come sunset in the company of your significant other.
