The Coral Garden

 

Beginners dive site, great for training. Swim amongst healthy corals and colourful tropical fauna: turtles, trumpets, trevallies... For experienced divers, head straight East for the drop line to get to a drop-off where barracudas and Spanish mackerels are regular visitors.

On your way back, check out the long stretch of sand with the bust of the famous Jacques Cousteau, around 12m depth.
