Scuba Diving the Yasawas, Fiji
Dive Site: White Rock
Location: Yasawa Islands, Fiji
Description: Isolated limestone islet
Depth: 10 - 20 metres (30 - 65 feet)
Visibility: 20 metres + (65 feet)
This isolated outcrop would be equally as well named for its blanket of bird poop as it is for its geographic makeup. I have only stepped foot on the beach once and was immediately repulsed by the sulphurous smell (I did spot a couple of foot-long baby blacktips whilst wading back to the boat though so it wasn't all bad).
Although not exactly in the middle of nowhere it is pretty much 'in the middle' and is a reasonable distance from everywhere. Ferries pass White Rock daily but with the exception of a few fisherman, few people stop there. The diving is nothing out of the ordinary but is just very, very pleasant. There are lots of angelfish and a wide variety of colourful corals, hard and soft. Along with reliably good vis and little in the way of a current it makes for easy, relaxed and very pretty diving.
