 Additional Information

English (Translate this text in English): The reef has the most diverse coral community at Sodwana, hence it is a dive area reserved for advanced divers who have good buoyancy control. Extensive beds of staghorn, mushroom and plate corals ensure a fascinating community of reef inhabitants can be found here.

As five mile is further out than the main 2mile reef it is dived less often and there is a surcharge to get there. It is worth the extra cash though.
