This is a great site where divers can see a lot of black coral and some fantastic marine life. This site is a great site for macro diving but there is also a really good topography so divers will be able to explore the area. The site is made up of a rock formation and this comes out of the water. The rocks form a wall and then a sloping area in the east. There is a big rock on the southern side as well. There are many ledges off the rocky formations as the rock formation is volcanic and this creates overhangs and crevices amongst the layers of rock.

The maximum depth of this site is 22 metres but divers will find themselves normally hovering around 5 to 10 metres. Currents are moderate but they can be strong. The visibility here can get as high as 20 metres but normally divers will find visibility levels of around 10 metres. Divers tend to come to the dive site between December and April.

The macro diving here is fantastic and within the black coral, divers should be able to spot many different types of sea horses. Divers looking for macro marine life can spot frogfish and nudibranchs amongst the corals.

The wall and slope have been colonised with red sponges, sea fans, and some hard corals. There are many reef fish amongst these corals including surgeonfish and barracuda. There are also white tip reef sharks, hammerhead sharks, eagle rays, and manta rays frequently seen on this site. Sea lions often come into the water and play with the divers.
