This is one of the best dives in this area. The south side of the site is a rocky wall, where it is good to spot a variety of marine life such as eels, nudibranchs and stonefish. The opposite side of the rock is a slope, covered in coral, and with an abundance of fish.
Amongst the common residents of reef fishes, blue-spotted ribbontail rays and morays are occasionally encountered, along with bamboo sharks and turtles. The waters around this site, also referred to as Three Finger Rock, are good for snorkelling.
Watching out for the Reef: Coral Conservation Guide for Divers
• Avoid touching live corals. You can kill them with your bare hands.

Many divers unintentionally destroy corals whilst diving.
Here are a few guidelines on how to avoid doing so.
• Use the correct amount of weight to aid in your buoyancy.
• Control your fins; keep them away from the reefs and avoid kicking sand onto the corals.
• Do not pick up organic objects (dead or alive) from the sea. Likewise, please do not buy shells or other decorative products made from sea animals.
• Do not stand or rest on the stone-like corals. After all, they are living animals.
