At first glance the site seems bland, but careful investigation will reveal interesting and varied life. A surprising variety of fish not commonly found in the region has been sighted here on odd occasions. There are several small wrecks and old mooring tackle to liven up the scene and provide artificial reef. This is the place to go when conditions are bad elsewhere, a popular training site, and great for getting new equipment configurations sorted out.

Wide angle or macro lenses are most likely to produce good results. Natural light is usually sufficient as it is shallow, but flash will bring back the true colours. External flash is essential for anything further than about 300mm as there is usually significant suspended matter which will cause backscatter with internal flash.
