Shark Cave

Description

At the entry point is a big stick standing in the reef as a visual reference. Start at 22-25m’ and look for the five caves, after that, the wall is not straight but with corners where you dive through and around. Half way the dive ascends to 8-12m for the coral garden on the slope, which is the best on the island. Bring for this dive site a  dive light to look inside the caves.

Marine Life

Look in the small caves on the ceiling for the comet. The caves sometimes have small white tip shark, the slope with hard corals are the best on the island.
