HolidayIQ Reviewer Sushmita Malakar shares, “This is a place for some pretty soft corals and different species of reef fishes. And these are super hungry and friendly reef fishes.

HolidayIQ Reviewer sreekala warrier shares, “The scale and proportions of the coral reefs here are mind blowing. Some of the coral flowers are the size of two small cars put together. And they come in exotic colors like orange, pink, purple and green. Some of them have long white tendrils that float delicately in the water. Some look like soft sponge cushions. The fishes that swim in and out of water are equally colourful. There are the zebra striped fishes, little orange fishes like Nemo, large fishes resembling sharks and a whole array of multi-coloured shining fishes that glimmer in and out of your circle of vision.Read Full Review
