About Anemone Reef
Anemone Reef is a small underwater limestone pinnacle starting at a depth of approximately 26 meters and rising up to just a few meters below the surface. This is the reef that the MV King Cruiser hit before it sank a short distance away, while the evidence of a collision can still be observed at the top of the reef. This site is called after the beautiful red anemones that overwhelmingly cover the area as if it was draped with a soft blanket. Despite the fact that this is a relatively small site, the abundance of its marine life is astonishing. All they compete for a very limited living space; different species of morays (especially the small white eyed moray eels) can be seen sharing the same crevice; predators such as trevallies swim in the blue hoping to pick off any fish that dare to stray too far from the protection of the reef. Numerous species of shrimps, nudibranchs and exotic macro marine life can be found from the depths up to the surface, like sea horses that make their homes within the Gorgonian fans. If you are fortunate enough, you may even find leopard sharks resting on the sand at the base of this most spectacular and more than magnificent pinnacle.

The anemones house the Anemone fish and the Clownfish which protects them from predators. This reef is clearly a magnificent dive site especially when the visibility is good.
