Well much as we love East Diamond Islet - fantastic anchorage, great bird life and crystal clear water - the reef system appears to be under stress. The majority of the reef has been severely damaged by recent cyclones and there are places where there is simply no living coral and very few fish. After much searching we found life in the patches behind the sand cay - even a turtle or two. Hopefully the reef will return to it's former glory in the coming years...
