This site is a real adventure to dive and is subject the weather and sea conditions as the area can have strong currents. Descend to a plateau at 22metres from where there are drop off on two sides.
This reef has the nickname "The Aquarium" thanks to its enormous schools of fish. Even reef fish, usually in pairs, tend to cluster in large groups here. Moray eels inhabiting the many caves on its western side make up for the relative scarceness of other marine life. But fish populations increase dramatically along the northern wall. The enormous schools of bannerfish are particularly impressive, along with barracuda, tuna, blue spotted rays and the occasional shark.
