The site is calm with mild currents, relatively easy, and with great visibility of up to 30 meters, making it a great introduction to the area. This reef is often used as the first dive for new divers to the Similan Islands. The site includes a large bommie, which is covered in many different fish. The top of this bommie is at 12 meters and it goes down to about 20 meters allowing divers to spend some time exploring and observing the marine life. Besides the bommie, the reef has many soft and hard coral pinnacles, and in some of the deeper areas, there are the granite boulders so common to the area. As with other sites, the sandy patches can often be home to groups of garden eels and blue spotted stingrays.

Amongst the more common marine life, there are large schools of glassfish and it is easy to spot trevallies, stingrays, or even anemone fish hunting these huge groups. The site also has many nudibranchs, titan triggerfish, red-toothed triggerfish, boxfish, cornet fish, angelfish, and butterfly fish. Often divers can spot more unusual fish such as rock razor fish, frogfish and the long nose hawkfish.

Many divers complete this reef alongside the nearby Tuna Wreck. This was a 30-meter fishing boat that was sunk in 2003 to purposely create an artificial reef. The wreck now sits at a range of 28 to 40 meters and is slowly becoming colonised by corals and marine life. It makes a great second dive to be completed after visiting Anita’s Reef.
