Turtle beach used to be a nesting site for turtles in the past, therefore the name. This is a shallow fringing reef surrounded by brilliant blue water and margined by a sandy area with small patches of sea grass.
A great site for beginner divers to help them develop their diving skill as it has both a deep and a shallow end. One can find a vibrant and vast bio-diverse reef ecosystem. You can witness a school of Bumphead parrot fish amusingly crunching on coral and a wide variety of Butterfly fish, Pipe fish and Banded shrimp.
