This dive site is located between Monte’s Divi and Joanne’s Sunchi, but is yet very different. You can find it by, the name says it all, the pile of rocks on the beach. Because of the light flow and lovely shallow plateau snorkeling is fantastic here.
It is also an excellent location for night dives, especially just after the drop off. The buoy is at 16 feet, close to the drop off at 29 feet. The platform consists of white sand with hard and soft coral and has many tropical fish. Here octopuses and gold spotted eels are regularly observed.
The area between the drop-off and 52 feet is the most beautiful, with steep ridges rising up from the reef and of course the many coral and all the different species of fish. Unfortunately, you will also find many red algae on the entire reef, which is not eaten by the fish. At night you will spot a lot of lobsters, crabs and octopuses.
Do you want to visit Rock Pile? In Bonaire Dive Guide you can find more information and detailed directions. Convenient, as many dive sites on the North coast are off road and hard to find. The guide is also practical as a reference and safe: leaving your mobile phone in the car during a dive is not wise.
