The bay is frequented by dolphins and manta rays during certain seasons. The north and south reefs feature walls that slope down to a sandy bottom at about 15m. The sandy bottom is littered with hard coral and extends approximately 8-10m, before sloping down to 50m+. White and black tip reef sharks, different ray species, resident turtles, barracudas, grouppers, mackerels, nudibranches and a lot of very colorful coral patches are just some of the highlights. A very pleasant dive site suitable for any level diver.
