This reef is a pretty slopping wall that drops down to around 30m/100ft. Divers can discover various channels and cracks on the wall that are ideal hiding spots for the octopus. This site also boasts a healthy number of red cardinal fish, which hang motionless in the crevices and caves of the wall. The elusive john dory, giant bearded fireworms and the rare sea hares can be spotted here.
