Kuredu Caves, is also known as 'Turtle Airport' due to the large population of green sea turtles that live here. There are a series of overhangs starting at 8 metres and dropping down to 20 metres. The ceilings of the overhangs are covered in soft corals and soldier fish swimming upside down. Stingrays can also be spotted on the sandy areas on the deeper ledges and big napoleons can also be seen cruising by. Porcupine fish, lion fish, moray eels, leaf fish and scorpion fish all make the overhangs their home.
