The Drop Off can be dived on various levels depending on experience and makes an excellent multi-level dive. Besides amazing coral growth, this reef features an unbelievable landscape sculpted by many overhanging rocks.
The presence of smaller reef fish is abundant, with angelfish being the species worth mentioning. Besides emperor angelfish, yellow-faced angelfish and blue-banded angelfish can be found with the duke fish rounding out the selection as a member of the angelfish family.
Often, huge schools of trevally and bumphead parrotfish pass the wall, darkening the sun. Although it is a wall, this dive site is also suitable for snorkelling.
