Quite shallow diving site, from 10 meters sandy bottom. Nice pinnacles and main reef. You can see there lots of beautiful fishes: Scorpinfishes, morays, rays, lot of nice yellow goatfishes, porcupinefishes, nudibranches.... You can make several different dives there.

A great reef with loads of fish to see. Several large shoals of goat fish and barracudas and often turtles visiting to feed. Well worth a visit.

Here you can make quiet dives with almost no currents and loads of fish. Always love to come here. both the east and west side are okay and its even possible to drift to the reef.

Visited here after day spent snorkeling. I don't own water resistant camera so got lots of pictures ( you have to pay for this a little) of all the fish we saw in the osean. Worth to visit
