The scenery around the pinnacles is simply amazing (especially in the shallow water at the top of the reef) with some hard coral patches, barrel sponges, crinoids, gorgeous green tree corals, and a thick carpet of purple, red, pink and yellow soft corals covering granite rocks. Marine life includes lionfish, scorpionfish, porcupinefish, schools of snappers, stonefish, sea kraits and several types of moray eels.
