Beautiful pieces of caves where you can go through plenty of fish and be planted

Coral Cave can be reached in several ways. Along the coast past the salt pans, then enter with a 2 meter giant stride. Then you will find yourself directly above the Coral Cave. More likely is that you go into the water with a dive guide at the Blue Hole and from there visit the Coral Cave. Exit the water at Coral Gardens or at the Blue Hole. The Coral Cave is a cavern filled with different soft corals and sponges. You will also find shrimp, fish and giant mussels. A great experience but check your buoyance so you do not damage the fragile corals.

Particulars

Make sure you are able to do the long march to the entrance spot, especially when it's hot it's an exhausting walk.

Warnings

Long walk to entrance!
