Shark's Cave is another Layang Layang dive site that delivers just what its name states. This is another wall dive into the abyss but there is a ledge at 30m where Leopard sharks like to rest in the day. These placid sharks can be approached very closely by divers.
At 24m deep is the entrance to a cave which is home to nurse sharks and white tip sharks as well as leopard sharks. The cave is about 6m long and the entrance is 3m wide so there is plenty of room to get in and out but it is advisable to leave space for the sharks to exit the cave past you in case they get spooked. Out of the cave on the wall there are soft corals and gorgonian sea fans plus schools of reef fish. Pelagic fish can be seen in the clear blue water, often darting into the wall to hunt for bait fish. Hammerhead sharks and manta rays are common here too.
