Approx 5 mins drive from the Club in an area known as the Tourist Camp. Enter the site through a maze of fringing reef with fantastic displays of Fire coral. Drop down to 5m and follow slope down to 12m to a large pinnacle full of a variety of marine life. Head across the sand to a large circular reef with a Gorgonia Fan coral in centre. Continue down to 24m where shoaling Pennant Fish have a "permanent" home.
Ascend slowly in a circle and watch territorial displays Parrot Fish till you reach 10m. Following the reef south you encounter many Clown fish and anemones, plus occasional Ghost Pipe fish in the anemones, Scorpion Fish in the purple acropora coral.
