This is a dive site is well known as a site for seeing turtles, mantas, and of course, white tip reef sharks. Located on the south-east side of Sipadan Island, the site is a wall dive that goes below 30 metres and many sharks can be spotted here making it a perfect site for divers looking for pelagic fish.

The site starts at around 17 metres and goes down to around 40 metres, with mild currents. Visibility is excellent stretching to 30 metres making it relatively easy to spot the large fish. It can be dived by divers of all levels but is most suitable for advanced divers especially as the dive often goes to quite deep parts of the area.

The wall is covered in many large colourful sea fans black corals, feather stars, sea whips, and sea squirts. The wall is a great place to explore to find many different reef fish, but it is at deeper depths below 25 metres where divers can spot the larger pelagic fish out to sea. The white tip reef sharks are very used to divers and often cruise past very slowly, giving photographers plenty of time to take pictures. Out in the blue, it is also common to see grey reef sharks and hammerhead sharks. Large schools of jacks are also seen out to sea away from the wall. The site could have also been called Turtle Avenue or Barracuda Avenue, as it is more or less guaranteed to spot these two marine species at this site.
