Scuba diving in The Wall
The Wall is a very small site. It includes an underwater ledge whose tip and sides make up the wall dropping down to 55m/180ft. The top of the wall is very colorful with purple, red and yellow soft corals. This is the best local site visited by lots of fish such as barracudas, large napoleon wrasse, lionfish, nudibranchs, octopuses, scorpion fish and even anglerfish are seen tucked into wall crevices. On the sandy parts kulhs rays are spotted with or without their tails. This site is also ideal for night dives due to its close proximity to the shore and easy navigation. Depth ranges between 10-55m/32-180ft. Usually, the site has a moderate to strong current, so it is best suited for experienced divers. Average visibility here ranges from 10m/32ft to 15m/49ft.
