FAHAL ISLAND

The incredible thing about this limestone is that it was originally part of the seafloor but due to the change in sea levels, the rock was exposed. Fahal Island is made up of corals, shells, and algae.

You can usually access this island via a 20-minute boat ride from the dive center. It is ideal for divers of any level because of its varying depths. The bays have different kinds of hard and soft corals which can be explored by snorkelers and novice divers.
