Tikila Beach

Located just south of town, this is a great entry point for confined and open water training. Max depth 20 feet and partially protected from the current. Also great for night dives & photographers.

Good spot for macro photography, including regular seahorse sightings. Coral reef restoration area is just to the north, so artificial reefs attract a wide variety of marine life.
