Head south and you will enter Lucy’s Reef and which consists predominantly of hard corals however the further south you go the hard corals disappear and are replaced by rock formations. the reef has been know to have eagle rays swim by and again if lucky the Manta rays have made an appearance here as well. A nice dive site that will throw up enough good stuff to keep all avid underwater photographers happy.

Another really good site for snorkelers and the best time to go there is the low season between April and November.
