Experience level: easy diving, if current isn’t too strong

Fauna: along the edge you find small schools of banner fish and blue-strip snappers; often seen tunas, napoleons and eagle rays

Particular features: caves with beautiful yellow and blue soft corals

During north-east monsoon: mostly reef to the left; between 20 – 30 m caves, where you find nice soft corals; on the reef flat there are beautiful stone corals; at some parts you’ll find schools of blue-strip snapper and banner fish.

During south-west monsoon: mostly reef to the right; otherwise like north-east monsoon season.

Safety considerations: watch your computer, as caves are quite deep and you can easily get a decompression time.
