Blackish Point

The overhangs and shallow caverns of Blackish Point were formed before the ice age, carved into the black, volcanic rock by centuries of waves crashing into the north side of the island before parts of it finally became submerged. The top of the wall, abundant with sea plumes, sits at 9m/30ft, dropping to an area of stunning coral gardens and overhangs between 15-22m/49-72ft. Follow the wall east along the overhangs to find scorpionfish, spiny lobsters and moray eels hiding amongst the cracks and crevices before heading down to 24m/79ft where a series of shallow caves make for interesting exploration as the reef gives way to a sloping sandy plain.
