We would not recommend Full Moon unless one is very wealthy and does not mind looking at factories from the beach

Had my 2 open water dives on this reef for my PADI certificate. Great reef for a beginner like me and great guidance by Ambra Dugaria my diving instructor. Will stay as the place where I broke my duck diving wise

Beautiful reef, very good viability, lots of sea life. Suitable for beginners and you can see a lot in a short period of time.

Not a phenomenal reef but we did see an octopus and a big shark. It's shallow so you can get a good view. Too many beginners came on one trip for my liking.

It was amazing seeing the reef, the only downside was that it had to be cut short as a tropical rainstorm started as we were out but it was kind of fun.

HP Reef sits beside a narrow channel where currents provide nourishment for incredibly rich growths of soft, blue corals, and support a large variety of reef fish. To witness a kaleidoscopic display of coral reefs, venture off to HP Reef.
