This bit of rock in the middle of the ocean doesn’t really qualify as a proper island it’s the rocky top of a volcano so you need to boat out to it but when you get there and get deep you’ll be in some of the clearest diving waters you can find. The water temperature is warm at the top and cold lower down where you’ll see hammerheads and other sharks and lots of eels. Only for experienced divers this spot is remote, deep and the currents are strong. Very exciting.
