Black Forest

There are many coral heads in the shallow part and a forest of Black coral at 35-45m. Usually, the dive starts against the current and stays low over the sandy bottom, and after, the current will change, so you can drift dive the second part.

An aquarium with all kinds of Anthias, Rockcods Groupers, Scorpion fishes, Squirrel fishes, Parrotfish, Wrasse, Damsel Fish, and Anemonefishes. The triggerfishes are aggressive in the months of May, June, and July.


Rico's Wall

Drop-wall in front of the resort on the west side of the island. The dive site has many small caverns, ledges, and reef overhangings. If you are going in the north direction you probably finish the dive in the dive site Cathedral and if you dive in the south direction, you finish at the dive site Rudy’s Rock.

Large schools of Vlamming’s Unicorn fish and silver Jack’s Big eye Trevally that are swimming in circles like a tornado Midnight Snapper and many different kinds of big-size Sweetlip fishes.



Wall with big overhangs, ledges, and gaps. On a bright day, beautiful light reflects inside the cathedral.

Among the overhangs are yellow bucket sponges, and the wall has big and colorful sea fans. Often, Barracudas and Anglerfish, among the shallow water, are the snub nose drummer. Off the wall in the blue water, the Big-mouth Mackerel. Close to the border are many Golden Sergeant fish, Midnight Snapper, and many Pyramid Butterflies. They are also seen in the One-Spot Snapper.
