Sabalos gets it’s name from the big school of Tarpon that are sometimes found at this site. There is a shallow area of 7m/23ft where there are many varieties of coral and we can often see sea turtles. It drops down from 7m/23ft to 15m/50ft forming a nice wall with many inlets that protect you from the drift, allowing you to stop and observe the coral formations and sea life such as schools of porkfish and porgies, stingrays, Spotted and Green Moray eels that live in the area. There are a few chimneys and caverns along the wall that you can swim through and look for lobsters and shrimp, and possibly Nurse sharks resting in the sand.
