This place is famous for its huge amount and variety of soft and hard corals with dominance of brain corals, the largest and most beautiful in the region. Hence the nickname Aquarium The small oval shaped reef with sand ground in a depth of 12-15m. In the east 2 coral blocks you can find and a beautiful coral garden; a perfect spot to start your dive.
