Monkey Beach is a coral slope down to 18m/60foot makes an easy dive, good for novices. Small coral heads have crinoids, nudibranchs and plenty of small reef fish.
A 20m/65foot local cargo boat named Monkey Wreck sunk in 1993 lies off the main reef in sand at 40 meters deep and hosts a large school of batfish and some good-size snappers and groupers. Mostly collapsed, it still attracts many divers due to the abundant fish life that shelters within the hull. Large emperorfish, angelfish, schools of red toothed triggerfish and the oddly shaped barramundi cod all take shelter within the bare bones of its ribs. Advanced dive due to depth and since the currents can be very tricky.
Deep Monkey Beach is a series of walls, overhangs, ridges and spectacular cliff-like formations that step off to deep water in this area. You could potentially make four different dives here depending on the direction and strength of the current. Common to the area are giant gorgonian fans, basket sponges, soft tree corals and fields high whip corals along with a great diversity of fish life. You may see shoals of sweetlips, unicornfish, snapper, mackerel and tuna. Currents can be strong so best to plan the dives around slack tide. Again, this site is only suitable for advanced and technical nitrox diving due to the depth.
