This was my first experience of a coral garden. I didn’t realise it was such a literal phrase, believing it to be more of an accepted term for a coral collective. Palancar reef is very garden like. In the clear water against the pale sand, the coral colours are breathtaking as they peek from caves and canyons and from under overhangs before flowering into stretches of garden. After following a wall along I swam though a crevice and came upon a proper garden of bright coral. It was like something out of The Little Mermaid. Fish take a back seat to the coral in many sections but once you get used to it you’ll be looking out for larger life again, a selection of lobsters, crabs, rays and barracudas and other typical coral reef species.
