    unfortunatley not too much is accessable from the land but off of the point of ponto and around the back there is a reef you could swim out to..

    malangane has a reef called "kevs legde" which is amazing on the drop off side but its about a 60-100m swim out to see to the front edge of it.

    if you drive further north for approx another 40min there is another point leading into a bay.. tucked close to the inside of the point there are a few rocks/ boulders that are teeming with fish life but very few corals.. i think the sand kicks up too much for coral growth to occur here..

    enjoy its an awsone place, im saving for next years trip already..
