Bari reef was right in front of our condo. We dove it multiple times including a couple night dives. Many varieties of small fish, schools of fish, squid & tarpons

Dived this reef off of Sand Dollar condo. Best fish life of any reef we dived on a recent trip. Not so much from a variety perspective but just the abundance.

The diving is great, lots of eels and easy entry and exit. Very nice restaurant next to the public dive site. Sand dollar has an even better facility for entry and exit, but recently they started charging for the use.

Very easy entrance from Eden Beach. Saw lots of fish. Wanna dive is right there if you need to rent gear. Really enjoyed it. There is a shelf or two where fish hang out.

This might be just a little better then the other reefs on this side of the island . No where as good as the wild side with east coast divers .

A great place to dive. Right at Sand Dollar and easy access. We also dove here for a night dive and it really showed off for us. This is a great place for beginner to intermediate divers. With nice shallows and a drop off that takes you down a ways if you want to go there.

Nice walk in dive. Also good for an easy night dive because of the entry and lighting. We had a couple of good dives here (lots of tarpons at night).
