Gem Cave

Best dove during high tide - best snorkeled during the lower tides. Located on the right side of the island. The gem cave has two entries and they merge together in the back. It doesn’t go far back and there is a slight space between the surface and the cave ceiling. Very dim lights - bring a torch!

Sponges, anemones, nudibraches, shrimp, big eyes and crabs! The walls at first don’t look like much, but once you shine a torch onto them they light up with many colours! Gem Cave!
