Description dive spot:
The island can easily be submerged, but only the eastern side is still well preserved. Due to the missing surf the west side is destroyed completely by El Ninjo. On the west side, some small blacktip reef sharks and mackerels can be seen. At the expiring reef on the south side is a cleaning station, where from time to time some mantas come by.
On the east side is a beautiful hard coral garden which is still 75% intact. There are a lot of perches, eagle rays, white tip reef sharks and reef fish of all kinds.
