Description dive spot:
This island has also been pretty much destroyed by El Ninjo. Only in the east, the hard corals have been preserved by the waves. You will notice however, that in the whole atoll only very few species of hard coral have been preserved. You can see curious blacktip reef sharks, mackerel, and many parrot and surgeon fish, but also a variety of different reef fish.
