This dive site is part of a larger marine protected area and so is one of the most beautiful parts of reef in the whole country. This fantastic reef is made up of large rock domes that have huge numbers of colonising corals. The fish life that accompanies the corals exists in equally large numbers.

The dive site is deeper than other dive sites in the area and reaches 30 metres in some parts. The lack of current and shallow depths makes it a nice and easy dive for divers of all levels. The large rock formations also make it a great dive for exploration diving and macro divers can easily discover many different marine species hiding amongst the rocks and corals. Divers will be able to spot crabs, shrimps, nudibranchs, and many other smaller macro life.

There are larger fish too, including many very large flower groupers, large schools of circling snappers, Rock Cod, Napoleon wrasse, turtles, and many other types of reef fish are commonly seen here.
