This dive site has a unique and interesting formation as it is made up of an area of granite rocks that are found half way between two main islands. Located midway between Mahe and Prasilin Island the granite rocks are covered in many corals, mostly hard corals, and there are many scattered surrounding rocks. Together these all provide a protective environment for the marine life in the area and make for a great dive.

The maximum depth of the rocks is a relatively shallow 25 metres and this leads to average dive depths of around 18 metres. Visibility here is good and can reach up to 30 metres although normally it is around 15 metres. The boulders have some beautiful soft and hard corals including some stunning white fans.

The rocks are home to many very large moray eels that have grown to very large sizes. There are also large schools of red snapper and fusiliers that swim around the rocks. Sometimes there are strong currents, and this attracts pelagic fish including barracudas and trevally. They are joined by sea turtles, Napoleon wrasse, eagle rays, stingrays, white tip reef sharks, nurse sharks, grey reef sharks, and sometimes other sharks. Other than that, there are also whale sharks in the right season.
