Named after the huge Gorgonia fan coral at 16m. After a zig zag entrance thru' fringing reef you are confronted with a huge Cabbage coral, the size of a house, there is also a resident turtle. This site is known for its 3 pinnacles teeming with life, Lion Fish, golden anthias, occasional Jacks and Cornet fish, plus a resident Arabian Angel and Yellow Mouth Moray. Good easy, shallow dive. From the first pinnacle continuing at 16m due west you arrive at a massive double Gorgonia Fan coral. Continue on to a small pinnacle with a number of Morays and hanging soft coral "gardens". Move slowly up the reef to another pinnacle at 9 metres, with an overhang full of Glass fish, Coral Grouper and Stone fish. Plus lots of cleaner shrimps providing a popular cleaning station. Swim back to the large Cabbage coral marking the entry point through the coral and the exit.
