You can park the car directly at the place where you enter the water. Don't leave any valuables in the car! Getb your dive gear ready at the car and walk down along the rocks, help eachother climbing down.

 

To reach this diving spot you have to walk and swim a bit. This will take you about 15 minutes. Go transverse over the place where there are no corals yet. From this point you can keep swimming to the white sign you can see on the other side. You can rocognize this place under water because of the great amount of finger corals. The drop off starts at 5 meters.

It is a hilly reef with a splendid coral garden. At the beginning of the dive you will find a lot of finger corals. On top of the reef you will see many elk horn corals. During the dive you will pass fields full of stag horn corals. Furthermore you will find different kinds of morays and angelfishes, spiny lobsters, porcupinefish, spotted drums, swarms of blue tangs and the chance to see some green sea turtles is very big over there!
