The bearing from BelleviewRock Resort is 251°. Easy dive suitable for PADI Advanced Divers or higher.

Start the dive with the wall on the left or right shoulder. A great dive site for night diving. This dive spot is the west side of Alona Beach, approximately 110m off the beach.

At the beginning of the dive there is a beautiful bow-shaped cliff, look for nudibranchs. A beautiful coral garden on the top of the wall is home to lots of small fish like redfin, amethyst and purple anthias. At the bottom of the sandy slope the splendid sand eels (Heteroconger preclara) and spotted garden eel (Heteroconger hassi) are found.

Good for snorkelling.
