Sunset Reef

A very easy site with usually light to mild current and, since it's a very gentle slope, the navigation plan is simple: go left or right shoulder! A very good mix of soft and hard coral with a big variety of small fish. The shallows are a bit damaged by the occasional storm and big swells but below 10 meters it's all good: lots of turtles, cuttlefish, lionfish, morays, big gorgonian fans and coral blocks, and around 20 meters of possibilities of sharks. Occasionally a manta ray or two will stay around, sometimes weeks at a time... Good sites for beginners, navigation skills, photography and refresher dives. Drift dive.
