This dive site is located in a bay in the high rocky coast in the east. The bay has a small rocky beach where swimming is discouraged because of the strong current. Go into the water with a giant stride from a rock, 10 feet above water.
The shallow plateau is very wide and consists of bare rocks. The reef has huge forests of purple sea fans where fish love to hide. This site is the most beautiful with large coral formations between 66 and 98 feet. You will often encounter reef sharks and nurse sharks here.
From the bay, the left side is the most beautiful to dive at. Here you will find a maze of tunnels, corridors, bridges and caves in the rocks where you can swim through. You will also find lots of sponges, anemones and beautiful fish. Exit the water through the bay, you’ll find small bennies and octopuses among the stones on the bottom. This dive site is also suitable as a boat dive, but there is no fixed buoy .
