Every adventurer dreams of reaching a mystical place they can discover for themselves hidden away from prying eyes.  The Tayak Lagoon is such a place where one can experience the joy of having made a wondrous personal discovery right at the very heart of nature.    

The Tayak Lagoon is a hidden pool of mostly seawater partitioned from the sea by rocks and thus can be reached by swimming under gaps under the barrier of rocks.  As it is separated from the sea and is partly inland, the tranquility on the water's surface is tantalizing amidst the greenery surrounding you neverywhere you look.  Coral gardens are vast and colorful.
