This is a great wall dive and the site is famous for the coral formations found on the wall as well as the pelagic fish found on the site. Found in the most southerly point of Sipadan Island, the larger fish that visit the site, are more common in the early morning and at the deeper parts of the site.

The wall drops off at a vertical angle with a plateau reef at 20 metres. The wall goes down to 40 metres and then it drops off into the depths of the ocean, down to over 600 metres. Divers often hover at around 30 metres off the wall, which is the best chance to spot the larger pelagic fish. It is often the best spot to see hammerhead sharks and the rare thresher sharks both of which normally live below 40 metres. They do come up to the levels of this site and so they can be seen here.

Divers can also spot huge bump head parrotfish. These can weigh over 85 kg and are over 1 metre long. They can be heard a long way off as they chew away at the coral. It is a fantastic site to watch these fish chew off the coral with their beaks. There are also octopus, moray eels, tuna, giant trevally, many turtles, and white tip reef sharks spotted here.
