Black Sand Beach

Also known as Boca Santu Pretu & Playa Chikitu, there is a 120 foot shipwreck of the Catherine. It lies upside down in 20 feet of water surrounded by colonies of Garden eels and is nicely encrusted with brain corals and sponges. The wreck is split in 2 and lies upside down with small areas that can be explored.

Divers proceed across the sandy plateau after the wreck to finish the dive on the northern part of Mushroom Forest.
