Take the chance to witness the explosion of colours in sponges – orange, blue, champagne, purple and green. Friends of Spongebob perhaps? They are nestled in the beach’s rocky area and also host to Brittle Stars.

Eager to find Mister Krabs? Look for Thunder Crabs, Flower Crabs, Purple Climber Crabs and of course Hermit Crabs. Try to spot the shy Onch Slug, which might be invisible to your eyes as it camouflages amidst the algae.
