Si beau mais parfois dangereux - Un très beau site proche du port et des quantités d'espèces à admirer.
Par contre, le récif n'offre pas d'abri lorsqu'il y a du courant, et on a vite d'être emporté et de se retrouver à contre-courant. Prudence donc lorsqu'il y a du courant, nous venons d'échapper à une plongée qui aurait pu tourner au désastre.
