Off the south west shore of Utila and only accessible by boat lay eleven cays surrounded by beautiful coral reefs and sand channels. Diamond Cay is the most south westerly of these cays and its fringing reef is filled with pillar corals, gorgonians and encrusting star corals and home to an exotic array of blennies, jawfish and damselfish. At its shallowest the reef starts at 8m/26ft, a mix of coral gardens and sandy channels that lead to the top edge of the wall before it drops down to the sandy bottom at 30m/98ft before gradually sloping off to a maximum depth of 40m/131ft.
