Description

Wonderwall is a long wall from 5 to 30m adorned with beautiful corals and anemones and commensal marine life from gobies and anthias to cute pufferfish.

The middle of the reef on the western side, has quite a steep fall to about 25 m. A certain part of the wall has cascaded down leaving a half cone of material which is strewn with small corals, and mushroom corals in particular.

It’s nice to know, that even when it’s not being observed by us, life on the reef carries on, in its own special way.
