EL ANCLA

The sandy seabed was home to lots of very big stingrays, some getting up to about 2m across. In some places the stingrays had gone but you could still see the imprints they had left in the sand. Due to the low vis any marine life we saw we only noticed when we were right on top of it, so managed to disturb lots of unsuspecting white tip reef sharks and stumbled across big shoals of grunts
