This vibrant and vivid dive site is a section of the vertical wall that runs around Ngemelis Island. Found west of Ngemelis Island and German Channel, next to Turtle wall, the reef is found just a metre below the water and is seen exposed during low tides. It is sometimes called West Ngemelis Wall and is increasingly becoming a very popular dive site in Palau, as it is a fantastic wall dive with amazing corals, colours, and marine life.

As the wall meets Turtle wall, the two walls create a corner that plateaus out at around 10 metres. It then drops off to depths beyond 150 metres deep. The corner section of this part of the wall is the main attraction as many Grey reef sharks gather here and divers can stop here for a while to watch them swimming by.

Like other parts of the wall, divers can find many different corals with many different colours. Amongst the corals, Napoleon Wrasse, and spotted eagle rays are often spotted alongside large numbers of fusiliers, Moorish idols, square anthias, and butterfly fish. Nudibranchs, moral eels and scorpionfish are all commonly spotted amongst the coral. On the plateau section of the wall, divers can find large schools of barracuda and snappers. There is a second corner section of the wall where the current can pick up and become quite strong. Near here, there is also a canyon that goes down to 40 metres where there is an entrance to a cavern that is worth exploring. Divers should only attempt this section of the dive if air and time allow.
