Magic Rock used to be a single rock filled with small marine life, nowadays moved to its nearby wall and hard coral reef.

Magic Rock used to be merely a single bommie with exceptional critter numbers, keeping guests glued on this one rock for an entire dive. But El Nino brought warming which killed or drove off the life on that coral head, which never recovered. Now divers head out over a sand plain, which gently slopes to a fantastic wall which goes from 21 – 50 meters in depth. The sand is usually not very productive (though waspfish, frogfish and wonderpus are occasionally encountered), but in the shallows there is an exceptional hard coral garden from the coast down to 10 meters in depth, which offers fine snorkeling, sheltered from the SE winds (June – Sept.), but subject to swell at times during the rainy season (Nov. – April).
