Natural Feature
“This is the number one spot for kite surfers in the region. And even if you don't kite surf, it's fun to watch. You can find some shade at one of the kite huts (one or two of them sell refreshments) or go to Lak Laguna Bar and Restaurant and enjoy the view, on the southeast side of the lagoon.”
