Underwater attractions

To the diving site it is possible to get only by boat. Average depth is 10 m. There is a beautiful reef in the shape of crescent located near the blue lagoon. Translation of the name is “Small father of the turquoise water”. Near the reef lies a shipwreck of small boat, which most probably sank in 1998. The shipwreck is in a poor condition, but is very interesting thanks to numerous fish, which found shelter in it. The head of this ship remained in its place; there are also remains of the kitchen near the stern. While dive you can find a lot of species of sea animals. Picturesque views are creating multicolored corals. This is a perfect space for fans of underwater photography.
