SOUTH BUTTON ISLAND

18 miles from Havelock Island

SOUTH BUTTON ISLAND. 12°13.300N, 93°01.300E

Anchor in 25 metres on sand in the position shown, keeping well clear of the reef edge. There is sometimes a small mooring close to the southern reef edge which is suitable for tying your dinghy up.

Sadly the spectacular coral gardens around this tiny islet were destroyed by high water temperatures during 2011, which killed 99% of the coral. There is still worthwhile diving and snorkelling here, with many juvenile fish clouds and interesting coral bombies in deeper water to the NW side, but it is a shadow of its former glory.
