Versailles is beautiful and a must see. If you have bought a metro ticket for 5 zones, you can get there with this ticket. You take metro line 4 to the Pont de Sevre terminus. From there take bus 171 to Versailles. Takes 40 minutes and was packed. You can safely skip the restaurant Angelina: too hot, too busy and not beautiful. The beautiful rooms in the castle are really impressive. We rented a golf cart (75 minutes, paid 48 euros). You had to stay on certain lanes, if you steered in a direction where it was not allowed, the cart stopped automatically and you could only go backwards. In retrospect, renting a bike is cheaper and you can see and stop more. The park was much too big for us to walk through alone.

Best snorkling is out by "the rock" on the end of the island toward the lighthouse. We did not make it to the lighthouse. Be sure you have good watershoes as a lot of the beach is broken coral. That is difficult to walk on. The beach by the rock is nice sand. We saw a turtle, stingray and lots of fish. The lockers to keep your stuff safe were not available and you are not allowed at the resort unless you are a paying guest but we had a snorkle guide who watched our things so that was nice. No incidence of losing anything.

Excellent day of snorkelling and hiking. The glass bottom boat was a nice way to break up the day and we learned lots about the reef and marine life. Hiking to the summit is a challenge would only recommend if in decent physical Al shape. Great day

fitzroy island is beautiful. i saw a shark deep down in the ocean, at the snorkeling point near nudey beach. staff was helpful to let us know which snorkeling points are good to spot corals, turtles, etc. would love to go again

The island was beautiful with plenty of activities for all to entertain yourself. The restaurant offered some great food for lunch also.
