The dive site is well known for the Ghar Lapsi Cave, a shallow cave system, with several openings from where light shines through. But there’s so much more to enjoy. Shaped just like a finger and located at a maximum depth of 20 metres, Finger Reef features a small cave with a hole on its roof. The Middle Reef is made up of several reefs surrounded by sand, small boulders and seaweed and it is amongst the shallowest dive sites in the area at a maximum depth of 12 metres, while Black John, situated at a maximum depth of 38 metres, showcases some interesting rock formations and an impressive halocline. Interestingly, just under an overhang on the outer reef, there’s a crib – an actual underwater nativity scene, with almost life-size figurines.
The corals within the cave are often illuminated with the rays of light that streak through every crack and fissure of the rock, making it every underwater photographer’s paradise. Apart from the mesmerising landscape, some marine life you’ll be able to see here include sea breams, cuttlefish, cardinal fish, groupes, moray eels, flying gurnards, parrot fish, as well as octopuses and jellyfish. And seeing that large areas are covered in seaweed, nudibranchs and sea hares can be found in abundance.
