Another of the caves that honeycomb the limestone cliffs of Christmas Island, West White Beach Cave is perfect for beginners. The cavern opens up around 40 feet (12 meters) below the surface with two large entrances. Inside, a large room welcomes divers to explore the various coral formations growing on its walls, and lionfish rest under protected ledges. Look out to the open ocean for great photographs of your fellow divers silhouetted against the sunlit background. After you’re done exploring the cavern, take a look at the healthy reef system just outside between 40 and 60 feet (12 and 18 meters).
