This amazing shore dive is a lovely relaxing and calm wall dive. There is ample coral to make it a haven for many different reef fish, larger pelagic fish, and invertebrates. The dive site can reach down to 45 meters and so some parts are only for experienced divers.

There are many rock boulders, which make up an interesting topography of the dive site. They create the many swim-throughs, valleys, small caves, and other nooks and crannies of this dive. These are remarkable and can make for a fun experience of swimming through smallish caves with two entrances and discovering small groups of upside down fish, swaying back and forth with the currents.

This makes up the majority of the dive although there is enough coral cover of both hard and sort coral to make it also possible to see the usual reef fish and invertebrates.

Many reef species can be found here including triggerfish, lionfish, moral eels, butterfly fish, anemone fish and clown fish swimming amongst the many different kinds of anemone, sweetlips, Moorish idols, and some larger fish such as wrasse, jacks, and trevally.

The site is well known as a site harboring Manta rays, eagle rays, some stingrays and other larger types of marine life. Lucky divers will see both white tip and black tip reef sharks, and the rarer leopard shark. If divers venture further down they may even spot a whale shark cruising by.

The coral on this site is beautiful with many different soft corals and spectacular sea fans. As with all soft corals, it is worth having a closer look to see if any smaller marine life is taking refuge. Pygmy seahorses can be spotted here, as can shrimps and smaller crabs. The coral reef host many different species of marine life including lionfish, triggerfish, moral eels, anemone fish and clown fish swimming amongst the many different kinds of anemone, butterfly fish, Moorish idols, sweetlips and some larger fish such as jacks, wrasse and trevally.
