Beqa Lagoon is created by a barrier reef that is covered in profuse coral growth. The volcanic Tonga trench supplies tons of nutrients down to the islands that allow an ecosystem to flourish. There are some wreck dives here as well as reefs, walls and tunnels. Divers can expect to enjoy the company of sharks and other large fish. To explore that little bit further a field and to access the more remote sites, a liveaboard may be a good option.
