Phu Quoc Snorkeling – Free-diving: Phu Quoc Coral Reefs (check out Undersea Coral Mountain)
Being 16 km of the An Thoi harbor in the An Thoi Archipelago at Phu Quoc Half-moon Reef – in the South sea of Phu Quoc Island, Phu Quoc large Golden Anemone Reef is one of the ocean treasuries in Phu Quoc Sea that we discovered through our exploration of Phu Quoc coral reefs. It is a large anemone reef that is a golden color and we name it Golden Anemone Reef for that reason. Situated by the foot of a large cliff at the depth of 5 meters then it is usually ignored by tourists as it is not within the range of vision on days of turbid water. You need to dive down at least 3 meters or 4 meters to get a clear view of the Phu Quoc large Golden Anemone Reef. (Check out Phu Quoc Coral Reefs as well as Phu Quoc other Ocean Treasures such as Phu Quoc Undersea Coral Mountain). Check our itinerary visiting this Phu Quoc Large Golden Anemone Reef?
