Swanpool beach entry/exit

Underwater directions:  Head out to 4m and turn left (east) and follow the reef along and back. or head right and there is a reef the same as the left. If you head straight out the is some sea grass and the chance of seeing thornback rays. The wreck of the Ponus an oil tanker that went down in 1916 is north of the bay here. All that's left now is some plates that make an interesting place for fish to hide. So if you have an U/W Camera take it as you will get lots of good shots here.

Site Hazards:  No major hazards here except occasional boat traffic so an SMB is required.
