The Black Coral Garden is a fairyland of large pristine bushes, located between 22 and 35 meters. The bushes can be found in large patches if you know where to look, and many of the bushes are more than two meters high. There is an eerie, fairytale quality to black coral, and divers are usually amazed at the iridescence of the bushes, created by the same protein that gives pearls their beauty. This is a special dive that allows divers a glimpse at a rare and fascinating species!

Its best dive site, the Black Coral Forest, can be found at the end of a gentle slope at a depth 25m-30m. Here the precious coral can be found huge bushes, ranging from white to neon green to purple in color. Turtles often can be found resting there, and whenever the current picks up eagle rays can be spotted overhead. The huge coral boulders at shallower depth are excellent places to look for lobsters, frogfish and a large variety of other coral fish.
