Snorkeling at Gorilla Chop

Beginner-friendly dive sites in Coral Sea

This snorkeling spot is marked by a rock that looks like a gorilla and its chopping hand. The sea is rich in fish and has beautiful soft corals, but when the sea conditions are unfavorable, sand will rise up and transparency of sea water decreases due to sand. In such cases, you can enjoy beach combing! Pick up your favorite coral, driftwood or stones to color them. When sea conditions are good with low tide in a day, you will have amazing experience for snorkeling as the various corals and fishes were everywhere. Shower facility and free ample parking are available. There is also a restaurant and a convenience store close by.


Parking: Available, free parking
