This is worth a visit when conditions are allow. Had Nuan has numerous corals in very shallow water, ideal for snorkellers and novice divers. In the bay at the southern most point of the island is a breakwater and a small concrete platform, about 50m (150 ft) from this platform are large concrete rings under the water. These rings are covered in soft corals and fans, many reef fish have made the rings their home. The reef getting a little deeper as it rounds the south west headland, it will continue north until reaching the next bay. You will find a few very large coral boomies along this stretch of coast line. Although you might not be able to get any deep water here you will be pleasantly surprised at the varied amount of marine life in the shallow waters.
