Geological Information

Hogsty Reef is a true marvel of nature, characterized by its circular shape and a thriving coral reef that encircles a shallow lagoon. The atoll is a result of thousands of years of geological processes. The coral formations, which form the backbone of the atoll, provide a habitat for a really diverse range of marine life. The lagoon inside the reef offers a calm and well-protected anchorage.
