It has a shape of a bow with a pillar in the center. The cave is very narrow and allows the passage of just one diver at a time. This site is rich in flora and fauna, including corals, lobsters and octopus. At night divers may spot alicia and white-dotted-octopus. Diving at this site is recommended for advanced divers.
