Beqa Island is surrounded by the reef, where the dives are available from the shore. Diving from boats is organized on the barrier reef that stretches for tens of kilometers at the western side of the island and forms a shallow lagoon. There are many underwater dwellers near the reef that make the dives bright and colorful. Marine relief is the first thing that catches one’s sight. The main attraction of the place is the presence of sharks of various species. Some of them are constant visitors, that’s why guides have learned how to distinguish them and even named some sharks.
