 Additional Information

English (Translate this text in English): One of a number of "banks" that rise from the sea bed. Originally misplaced on British admiralty charts. Silvertip Bank rises to a minimum depth of 14m. It was once famous for its silvertip sharks, which have all but disappeared now. Nurse sharks may still be occasionally spotted, and other sharks such as white tip reef sharks can be spotted if one descends down the edge of the bank. The coral reef is interesting, but has suffered extensive damage from dynamite fishing in the past.
