Consisting of two sites to dive from, the Head or the Tail, depending on the weather conditions, this lovely spot has so many caves, holes, tunnels, huge labyrinths and crevices in the clusters of underwater volcanic rocks to explore and swim through, that it looks like Swiss cheese! With mild currents and a fairly shallow reef ranging from 3-4m to a maximum of 23m, this is a popular spot and is good place for beginners to try.
On the north-western side, you’ll find the skeleton of a small sunken Japanese fishing boat, look on the underside for sleeping moray eels, and you can glide above a massive and dense coral garden about 18m deep, just crammed with stunning flora and fauna like black corals, beautiful gorgonian sea fans, barrel sponges, and both soft and hard corals in all colours.
With the multitude of crustaceans and creatures both big and small nestling amongst the corals, rocky caves and tunnels to look for, such as starfish, nudibranchs, seahorses, anemone crabs, cuttlefish and ghost anemone shrimp, this is a macro photographers dream and offers wonderful night diving as well.
Some pelagic fish seen here are blue spotted sting rays, blacktip sharks, barracudas, hunting jacks and large green-back turtles as well as common reef fish in dazzling colours. You’ll also see schools of pufferfish, parrotfish, scorpionfish, butterfly fish, mutton snappers, wrasse and lizardfish, and watch your fingers around the feisty titan triggerfish here.
