There are plenty of holes, nooks and cracks inside Grotto Reef to create hiding spots for many different species of fish.

Dive site Grotto's is situated north of Mike's Cupboard, similar but just the bigger version. It is still a flat reef but just more and bigger hollows in the reef itself. In these hollows are pinnacle-like rock formations as well as ledges that form overhangs. Sand patches can be found on the bottom of most of these hollows. The hollows reminded me of the craters on the moon!
On this dive we found a Greyspot Guitarfish, Honeycomb Moray Eel, Pepper Moray and various species of Nudibranchs. A great number of tropical fish like Trumpetfish, Flutemouthfish, Goldies, Peacock Rockcod and Parrotfish is to be seen, to name just a few. There are nice shells on the sand patches and the coral life is full in bloom. Various types of hard and soft coral is found on this part of the reef for instance; Fleshy soft coral, Sea urchins, Brain coral, Leather coral and lots of Anemones. There are large patches of Plate coral with fish like Angelfish hiding underneath. Grottos is a very nice dive for photographers with almost no surge in the hollows.
