In the clear waters around this island are Nurse Sharks, stingrays, turtles, jacks, tuna, barracudas, snappers, parrotfish, triggerfish and a colourful range of crustaceans. Reefs ring the pale sandy beaches in shallow seas where visibility is as good as 20 to 40 metres. Most of the dive sites are around or in the Punta Frances Marine Park, and though you have to go out in a boat to get to the best ones, the boats don't have to anchor s there isn't much damage done to the reefs. There are some wrecks a bit further afield, but you usually have to pay a bit extra to dive them. Makes a nice change from the beautiful, quite pristine looking reefs, if that's the kind of thing that could possibly get old for you.
