Linene Reef lies east of San Sebastian point and north east of Linene Island. Here is where great shoals of pelagic fish merge with reef dwellers and divers are often met by a number of potato bass. The reef forms a ridge at 16m, running north west to south east, upon which the coral formations look like fairy castles inhabited by magically colored wrasse, sea goldies, boxies, anglefish and so much more.
South of the ridge the reef slopes down and then drops off in a low wall to "The Caves" at 22m. This site looks like a mini-rift valley with its walled sides, which are undercut and host various species of large rock cod. Every type of reef fish seems to exist here, larger and more numerous than on most other reefs. There is a trench which has coral knitted over the top and looking down the openings there are enormous morays hidden in the depths. Swimming eastwards, the valley flattens out and majestic manta rays often glide past. North of the ridge, the reef drops off dramatically into a deep channel where shoals of barracuda, sierra and kingfish hunt. This is also the feeding ground for reef shark and hammerheads. Dive site Linene Reef is an exciting dive, suitable for Advanced Divers.
