Turtle Cove is located on the western point of Ngercheu Island. It starts with a small blue hole on the top of the reef, and a big cavern. It serves as an entrance to a wall full of caves, arches, and swim-throughs. This dive site is presented by an upright wall going down for 65m/213ft and a plateau. There is hardly any current around here. As the name suggests, there is a high chance to spot large sea turtles at this dive site.
