Snake Reef, Mauritius

A flat reef in the middle of a snake-shaped sandbank, nothing special at first glance... Don't be mistaken, this is the richest place in marine fauna of the region.

What to say everything can be seen there: scorpion fish, nudibranchs, triggerfish, leaf fish and stone fish... but also rays and others
