How Hot is this Dive Site? click a star to rate it
The vulcanic landscape of the island continues under the surface and in combination with white sand and great visibility gives spectacular bright landscapes. There are no corals in normal dive depths, but it is still possible to see much colour. Ideal for night dives, when many critters, hidden during the day, come out of their hides.
