The Western reef in the Philippine Sea has some of the most interesting hard coral formations in Yap. This site has unique coral formations with dramatic overhangs where divers see turtles, anemones and fish cleaning. Sunset reef is where divers are frequently interacting with one or two cuttlefish in 15m/45f of water over a hard coral jungle. Brilliant carpet anemones in every color pepper the outer reef

What to see
