Description of the dive-site
The maximum depth is 25 meters. Having reached the depth of 12-15 meters you will see first large coral formations. Bright colors of the corals with shoals of colorful fish swimming in them already give the feeling of some kind of a fairy-tale world. A little bit deeper, at the depth of 22 meters there is a big clearing in the middle of which you can see quite big coral formations that are almost perfectly square. That is why they are called “Tables of Neptune”. And among them there is a not less famous among divers spot “Gardens of eels”.
Early in the morning “Tables of Neptune” dive-site will surprise the divers with its big number of starfish. If you plan your diving a little later you will probably miss starfish because they hide in dark places.
