Hideaway Island House Reef provides introductory diving and snorkelling right off the beach in front of the resort. The reef extends some considerable distance shelving gradually away from the island (obviously!) It has an amazing diversity of marine life including some of the bigger stuff like morays and sweetlips, and the colourful striped surgeons. It also makes for a great night dive.
Here is what we saw on the ‘house reef’. Video version first…
… and then the pics.
Not exactly a big commute! Then the underwater action starts.
The Local Giant Trigger fish – is he about to swallow that little damsel?
Not a sea cucumber – but a sea pineapple
Much sweeter lips than mine!
And finally, a Moray with a Mona Lisa smile !
There is excellent snorkelling right off the beach in front of the resort. They also boast the only underwater Post Office in the world.
Note the little fish far left thinking ‘These humans – crazy … all crazy!’
