This is an excellent Sipadan dive site that is made up of a wall reef with a substantial amount of Staghorn corals forming a large coral garden plateau at 15 metres and then a drop off that goes down into the depths of the ocean. This is a great site for seeing beautiful coral formations and is very popular with photographers for this reason.

The dive site starts at around 20 metres and with the drop off it descends beyond 40 metres. Visibility is excellent for the area and reaches over 30 metres. There are often very strong currents and this with the relatively deep levels of the dive makes this a site suitable only for experienced divers.

The staghorn corals have grown too large sizes in this area and they are accompanied by black corals, sea whips, barrel sponges, and other corals. The coral garden is home to many angelfish, goby fish, nudibranchs, shrimps, groupers, and triggerfish.

Further away from the coral garden, divers will be able to spot larger fish such as manta rays and reef sharks swimming around and patrolling the area. White tip reef sharks and leopard sharks are both commonly seen. Less common are hammerhead sharks and whale sharks; the latter can be seen at this dive site in the right season.
