The site is a wall dive that starts at about 5m/16ft and goes down to beyond 40m/131ft. The wall is densely covered with different kinds of corals, along with giant gorgonians, sponges and offers many small caves and overhangs. This easy dive is fantastic for splendid photographs and afternoon dives.

When to go

Diving is available all year round. The best time to dive this site is from December to June. The average water temperature throughout a year ranges between 27-30C/80-86F.

What to see

Divers can explore rare pygmy sea horses, as well as different nudibranch species, well-disguised frogfish, rockfish, plenty of crustaceans and coral fish. On a deeper depth tuna, jacks, reef sharks, barracuda and occasional large napoleon wrasses can be seen, and at depths below 30m/98ft schools of hammerheads can sometimes be encountered after sunrise or before sunset.
