The Dive: 
This sunken reef is adaptable to any level of diver training. Starting at 6m , it gradually slopes down to around 35m, over algal growths of seaweeds, hydroids, sea grasses, small fan worms and fireworms. Small wrasse, blennies, sea urchins and damselfish inhabit the area. Four huge anchors are to be found amidst the boulders. Here occasionally one can spot groupers.
