Description dive spot:
The offshore reef is located in the interior of the Fakarava Atoll and can only be dived at low tide or high tide, as during the change very strong current prevails.
The corals on the reef are very well preserved, as the coral bleaching was not so strong here due to the constant cold flow.
On the reef itself are a lot of big fish to see. These include blacktip reef sharks, gray reef sharks and humphead wrasses, as well as large largemouth bass.
