The island is fringed with fallen rocks; these are larger around the northwest area, and are the main feature of the site. The gaps between some of the rocks offer swim-throughs; beneath the rocks are heaps of broken oyster shells, obscure nudibranchs and a few cowrie shells.
There are no pelagics or big fish of note, but you are likely to see small schools of fusiliers and snappers, moorish idols, squirrelfish and rabbitfish.

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.
