This dive site consists of a reef wall and a number of ledges, arches, small caves and a large cavern. It is found near Ngercheu Island and divers should not expect to see Turtles as it was named after a nearby beach, which used to be a nesting place for turtles. Divers can expect a fantastically varied dive with many areas to explore.

The visibility of the area is on average around 25 metres and it is a fairly straightforward dive that is suitable for all level of divers. There is a lot of exploration to be done, as there are many nooks and crannies on this dive. The top of the reef is about 1 metre and this leads to a gap in the wall that leads to a mini blue hole. This cavern is about 5 metres by 3 metres and divers can enter it and explore it. The wall then goes down to about 30 metres and it is usually current free.

Divers should look out for fusiliers, Moorish idols, anthias, butterflyfish, snappers, and big-eyed Jacks. Schools of goatfish, hawkfish, triggerfish, and different species of anemone fish and nudibranchs are also common. There are many different types of angelfish that can be spotted as well. Along the top of the wall, Grey reef sharks can be seen cruising along. At the mouth of the blue hole, white tip sharks and leopard sharks like to rest in the sandy areas. Even though turtles no longer use the nearby beach to nest, it is occasionally possible to spot turtles at this site.
