This dive site gets its name from its unique topography. The wall reef begins with a drop off that starts at around one metre deep. It gradually plateaus to a terrace at about 70 metres from which it descends into the deep blue ocean. The wall is covered in gorgonian fans and Alcyonarians that come in various colours, from rose to lavender to lemon. It is these colours that make the site look like the Babylonian mythological gardens and give the site its name.
This is a great dive site for divers of all levels and is a perfect site for underwater photographers. The depth of the dive is up to the divers experience and ranges from 5 metres to 40 metres with visibility hardly ever going below 20 metres. The wall has many canyons, nooks, and crannies and so divers have many options for exploration.
The marine life found in the corals is outstanding with colonies of coral groupers, anthias, surgeonfish, wrasse, triggerfish, moray eels, angelfish, hawkfish, gobies, and sweetlips hiding amongst the corals. Turtles are very common and divers have been known to see over 50 turtles on one dive. Most common are imbricate turtles and green turtles. There are also many ribbon tail stingrays to be found by divers as well. Divers can also find schools, yes schools, of grey reef sharks and hammerhead sharks. Less common but also possible, divers can see thresher sharks with their long upper tails.
