Where the local people are living there, including the accommodation in Hotel and lodges available to the visitors, there are three dive shops and now several supermarkets and other services.

The archipelago has 55 keys, 300 sand banks, shoals, and small patch reefs, also has atoll structure protected by two main reef barriers (South and East) to protect the open sea and the tide, creating an internal calm bay, clear waters and a fascinating biodiversity.
