One of the better shore dives. REALLY easy access, nil current and the configuration of a 'horseshoe' of 2 adjacent reefs separated by a sandy bottom, means you get to see a lot in a short space of time. The diving is fairly shallow and, as you are not fighting against strong currents, you get to make the most of your air. One of our dives was more than an hour. There are heaps of tube sponges (which look almost artificial) and it probably won't be long before you find yourself finning through large shoals of small green or blue fish. You will probably see more than one species of Parrotfish and if you are lucky you may encounter Seahorses and eels - we did. We went with Aqua Dive and the dive leader was very knowledgeable about the marine life. They paid the entry fee to the beach and even bought us a free drink. Onshore there are lockers, toilets and a freshwater tank provided to rinse out your gear. A worthwhile site for beginner or Intermediate divers.
