Lava flats that line up with the water line make this spot easy to enter and the interesting shapes on which coral gardens grow and fish take refuge in make it difficult to leave. Parrot fish, jacks, eels, turtles and dolphins make up only a small selection of the marine life that lives here. Calm and shallow with excellent visibility, this bay faces off the least friendly waves and is on the edge of a historic park which helps in it’s conservation. Loved by beginner divers and snorkelers alike. The left side is shallower and good for turtle spotting, the right edge deeper and better for dolphins.
