  • About Pinnacles:

This part of Two Mile consists out of rocky pinnacles with swim through overhangs surrounded by sand gullies. The largest pinnacle is 6 meters high and about 1 meter in diameter. A big ridge lies on the south eastern side, which stretches down to Four Buoy. Because the reef is fairly shallow, the light is able to penetrate better,  in turn making the colorful patterns on the fish life even more striking. An interesting dive is going slightly inshore from pinnacles and the navigating in the direction of Caves and Overhangs. In this dive

  • Average Depth 10-12m  Maximum Depth 14m
  • About the Coral Gardens:

This marvelous spot on Two Mile reef is very similar to Five Mile reef with beds of Staghorn corals on a flat table like surface on the western side. The reef also has a few overhangs with swim through overhangs surrounded by sand patches. The area has extremely colourfull coral formations and is a beautiful dive.

Beware of Corals because they break very easily and they take extremely long to grow back. Please preserve our Oceans for future generations to share in its splendour.
