There is plenty of wild life here including butterflies that seem to hang in the air almost without flapping their wings. Don't worry about the fresh water crabs when swimming.

To get to the swimming lakes, it is a very easy walk provided one does not have serious walking difficulties however, to get to all the way to the top, one must have no serious fear of heights because an little climb is involved using the metal hand / foot holds provided. Footwear should be sandals / trainers for this climb rather than flip flops. Remember - climbing down is always a little more difficult than climbing up
