 Additional Information

English (Translate this text in English): The area has lots of channels and crevices in the reef. A few decent walls which go down to 60-80 feet. A short swim down the shire is a open sea cave with ambient light and plenty of fish. Some hazards include stonefish, sea snakes, cone shell snails and during the later part of the year jellyfish (to include the box jellyfish). Overall it is an excellent site to dive with awesome scenery, many types of fish and of course easy entry and exit.

good dive - You can drive to a parking area above entry point. the locals set up air fills and sell some gear, snacks ect. you do have to scale down a steep cliff with your gear to enter, but it's worth the trek.
