ROCKY ISLAND

/ 3 / 5

Who says Rocky Island, says sharks. Sharks are by far the main motivation to go diving here. The reef is inhabited by a large school of gray reef sharks. They are one of the dominant species here and are happy to be photographed as the masters of the sea. But there's more ... On the west side of the island are hammerheads and dolphins.

Particulars

Rocky island is small above water but underwater it is big. Hundreds of meters of solid walls from the seabed all the way up, surrounded by overhanging coral gardens and caves.

Warnings

Strong current. Far from the coast and (medical) facilities.
