The Coral Cave is located left from the Blue Hole but can also be dived from another shore starting point right next to the salt pans. You have to cross rough limestone to get there though! Before the cave are some spectacular vertical walls and some coral gardens to be seen with many different types of fish. Hermit crabs, scorpion fishes, wrasses, parrots, bream and all kinds of starfish are often seen near the walls.
The cave starts at 18 meters deep where massive boulders are standing guard at the huge semi circle opening of about 20 meters. There are some excellent examples to be found of hard coral at the walls and floor inside the cave, but bring a torch to see them in their full glory. But be careful not to damage them as they are very fragile. Seahorses, damselfish, sea anemones, sponges, marine goldfish, virgin lace and urchins like to hide and show themselves inside this 50 meter long cave. Don't forget to look into the blue as pelagic species might pass by.
