Shark Fin Reef

Shark Fin Reef is easy to dive and is, therefore, an absolute highlight even for beginners. The granite rocks go slowly into the depths of the dive site and can be dived at any depth up to max. 30 meters.

There are gorgonians, huge hard corals everywhere, and the crevices are full of glassfish. You’ll also see stingrays or marble rays lying in the sand.
