Great Astrolabe Reef

Fodor's Review

The world's fourth-largest barrier reef traces the northern tip of the island group. Many resorts dive the site frequented by manta rays with wingspans of up to five meters. Those resorts nearest the Great Astrolabe explore more of its intricate coral-ways, while other resorts have uncovered excellent sites on the island's fringing reefs. Sea life across the group includes pipefish, sea horses, triggerfish, a variety of eels and wrasse, barracuda, reef sharks, occasional hammerheads, grouper, stone fish, octopuses, turtles, and spinner dolphins among many other species, all set amid a vast network of soft and hard coral formations including swim-throughs and mazes to impress the most experienced divers.
