Diving at this more than 30m/98ft deep site, divers might witness the famous sand falls accompanied by countless schools of sardines, sea boxfish, morays, butterfly fish, damselfish, file fish, green morays, grunts, parrot fish, lobsters, octopus and angelfish. Considered one of the greatest aquariums this site is the perfect place for beginners and advanced divers. Beginners can stay on the sandy shelf as they marvel at the large schools of grunts and scissortail snappers that congregate around sea fan-covered rocks. Experienced divers can follow the reef slope down the vertical drop-off in hopes of seeing passing manta or eagle rays. There is a light current and the visibility is about 30m/98ft.
