Comments Long lure frog fish, seahorses, and very nice reefs.Sperm whale watch fantastic, though no being in the water with them absent a$10,000 permit. Kind people, helpful divemasters.The anchorage is a lovely hotel. Their sister property, picard beach cottages, further north, is lovely but very noisy. Right next to an American university, the beach in front of the cottages is party central most of the time. If you want quiet, don't stay near the university. If you want to drink and play music on the beach nightly after diving, that's the place for you.
