This is another fantastic dive site of the Sipadan area, but unlike other sites, it is famous for the variety of hard and soft corals that can be found here. Although there are many different marine species to be found here, divers more often come to the site to explore the beautiful coral and so it is a great site for underwater photographers. It is possible to capture some really unique photos as the coral provides many different panoramic scenes.

The site has a good variety of depth as it starts at 5 metres and goes down to 40 metres. Visibility is standard for the Sipadan area with a maximum visibility of around 35 metres. The currents can be strong but this simply creates a good drift dive that can be completed by all level of divers.

The corals are some of the best in Sipadan and are extremely varied. Divers can see cabbage corals, green tree corals, stony corals, cauliflower soft corals, feather stars, green anemones, and sea fans. The sea fans come in many different colours and include gorgonian sea fans, and knotted fan corals; these provide a stunning backdrop to the marine life swimming by.

Divers will spot anemone fish nesting in the anemones, many hawksbill and green turtles, and hundreds of butterflyfish, grunt fish, puffer fish, boxfish, lionfish, leaf fish, Moorish idols, and damselfish. As with all Sipadan sites, reef sharks are easily spotted as well.
