We went to visit Sua Ocean Trench as part of a tour. It is a volcanic sink whole open to the sea via a tunnel. The depth of the water varies with high and low tide. There is some wave surge coming through the tunnel....More

A must see when visiting the area. Very close to our resort- Saletoga Sands. Insane view of not only the trench but the area surrounding the trench is stunning too.
