This is a lovely wall dive with moderate currents making it perfect for beginner divers. Divers of all levels will have fun though as the site is populated with many different types of fish and the coral is beautiful and in good condition. It is named after the beach resort that is further up the beach and it is a very good site for learning how to dive.

Located in the corner of the bay, the dive site is relatively deep, with the wall dive going down to a maximum depth of 22 meters. The wall is largely made of a mixture of soft and hard corals on large boulders.

Along the reef, macro divers will easily spot ghost pipefish, razor fish, and leaf fish. Moray eels, catfish, and glassfish are commonly found on the reef and amongst the nooks and crannies. There are many lionfish, scorpion fish, and octopus found in the reef and a famous frogfish that has lived in the reef for many years. There are some anemones and with them, their beautiful anemone fish including clown fish, and some porcelain crabs, and many shrimp to be discovered.

There is also a large school of barracuda swimming around and often turtles can be seen as well. Looking into the sandy patches on the seabed and divers can sometimes spot Blue spotted stingray as well, with only their eyes visible.

Nearby, there are a series of hollow concrete cubes that were planted in the reef in 2006. These have become an artificial reef and over time, they have become home to many types of marine life. There are many puffer fish, batfish, nudibranchs, octopus, and more moray eels, that have all adopted the artificial reef and taken up residence. There are also occasionally ribbon eels in the surrounding sand around the artificial reef.
