The Needles is a large area south of the island full of interesting rock formations. Depth ranges from 9 to 15 meters. The large sandy arena in the middle of the Needles is where you generally find most Leopard Sharks during the warmer months from December to April. All year round this spot is extremely popular with turtles of all sizes (GreenTurtles, Hawkesbill Turtles and huge Loggerhead Turtles) as well as Bullrays, Eagle Rays and Shovelnose Rays. Every now and then, Manta Rays come in and spend some time on top of the bigger bommies in the Needles.
