This is one of the most underrated and unknown dives in Fiji and is simply world class. This dive site is named after the many soft corals found in the area that are brightly yellow coloured. They decorate the current facing side of the reef and the feeling of tranquillity will make most divers feel extremely mellow.

The pinnacle reef starts at 5 metres and has a maximum depth of around 22 metres with visibility being higher than 30 metres making it easy to see the bottom of the ocean. Divers often do not have much of a chance to see the corals, however, as there are too many fish. Known as an aquarium dive site, there are literally countless species to be found on this reef. Found within Vatu-i-ra, this area was overfished and was in serious decline. The local community saved the area by banning fishing for a number of years and the area has now fully recovered offering marine abundance that is rarely found in Fiji.

The schools of fish are often so large that it is impossible to see through them. There are many schools of anthias and scalefin fish that float in the ocean along with the swaying soft corals. Divers should be sure to check the nooks and crannies for smaller life as the area is also home to many scorpionfish, nudibranchs, and shrimps. Juvenile reef fish can also be found lurking amongst the swaying yellow soft corals. At the end of the dive, the safety stop is completed whilst hovering over the fields of yellow coral and it is a fantastic way to end an amazing dive.
