Across the large, shallow sand channel of Jack Neal Beach golden gorgonians and small hard coral outcroppings provide tiny eco-systems for dusky damselfish and juvenile wrasse. On either side of the channel the fringing hard and soft coral reefs that start in the shallows of the beach gradually slope southwards reaching depths of 5-9m/16-30ft before tumbling down to meet the sandy bottom 18/21m/59-69ft below. Head east along the top of the reef for a network of sandy channels adorned with stunning elkhorn corals and impressive sea fans. Alternatively, follow the reef to the west for an abundance of soft corals and stony brain corals that are frequently visited by hawksbill and green turtles.
