Distance from the Resort: 30 min
Description: The reef, a steep wall reaching more than 30 m depth, presents many caves in the area beetween 18 and 30 m, and nice swimthroughs which you can explore one by one. Some of them reach immense sizes in length and heigth.
Inside this caves you find yourself in another world. Take a torch and explore the deep areas. Often we found sleeping napoleons in the caves. The wall is encrusted with sponges of all colors, in turn covered by bunches of soft corals of all sizes, tunicates, crinoids and colorful algae.
Also hard corals present a wide variety of shapes and colors. Schools of fusiliers, anthias, big surgeonfish, wrasses and butterflyfish are found around this wall. Facing the outside of the atoll, this dive offers good chance to see pelagic life passing by: reef sharks, eagle rays, barracudas, tunas.
Level: The dive is affordable by everybody. Beginners can enjoy the upper part of the wall, while more experienced divers, especially with nitrox will have many time to enjoy the deep caves.
