Ras Burg

Ras Burg is a stunning wall drift dive. The namesake of the site comes from a huge rock formation that sits out of the water that indicates the entry point of the site. Point of interest here is a huge cavern underwater that is located to the left of the Burg.

Glassfish cover the pinnacles on this site. Trevally can be found along with snapper, surgeonfish and barracuda. Turtles, rays and a variety of reef fish are found here.
