Namelala Island / Fiji

Soft coral
Namelala Island is surrounded by a coral reef. Descending to the dive sites near the island is conducted during favorable weather conditions as currents and roughness of the waves can be rather strong.
Chimneys are three small reefs that start at 3m/9ft depth. It has a sandy bottom, so it is possible to observe eel gardens, plenty of flatfish and a variety of shrimps. Magic Mound is a single reef that is 35m/114ft long and 12m/39ft wide. The depth varies between 5-27m/16-88ft. There is a chance of seeing scorpaena and reef sharks near actiniae, soft corals and coral trees. North Save-a-Tack offers descending during a rising tide when visibility can reach 50m/164ft and one may see barracudas, reef sharks and bonitos.
