East Reef Pool Coral Garden
This broad pool is only about 10 to 15 feet deep but stretches over many acres to the south of Barren Island. This pool shelters corals from nearby breakers, but the constant wave wash bathes benefits the corals. Over 50 species of corals occur in this pool, many not seen elsewhere at the atoll, and is one of the spectacular pools in the entire Pacific, supporting many varieties of table and branching corals, which in turn provide shelter to numerous colorful reef fish.
