Probably `the` best spot to dive in this area. Some of the most spectacular plant life on the coast and there are numerous caves, gullies and swim throughs. Small marine life, reef fish, Zambezi sharks, dolphins and game fish can be seen. Depth starts at +- 16 m and goes down to 26 m on the sand. Visibility is generally very good although it is only 2km from the beach, it can also be very poor. The boat ride is +- 4.5 km from the launch site.
