On all four sides of the island one can find an average height of 1.2 meters sandy lagoon. The water rises to a higher level during high tide and reaches 2 meters.
It is appropriate for swimming and water fun.
The area by the main pool is a bit shallower than the rest of the lagoon that surrounds the island; by high tide it reaches a height of 1.2 meters.
The lagoon is 30 meters wide to the east side and 60 meters wide to the west side. In a 6-10 meter wide area one can find corals where a colourful sea life hides out.
The corals begin at a depth of 2 meters and go deep to 15-16 meters, where the corals have completely covered up a slightly curved wall. While one can find many table corals there, the spot still does not lack colourful corals. At 16 meters the sand ground starts and goes down to 30 meters with a slight slope.
When snorkeling it is possible to see tropical fish such as Parrotfish, African threadfish, Anemon fish (also known as Clownfish), Snapper fish. Especially the lagoon where the water bungalows lie one can easily watch the marine life from the jetties.
While snorkeling on the coral reef the chances are high for one to come by Eagle rays, turtles, Batfish, Napolyon fish and many other rare fish families. In the south east of the island, one can find the Leopard shark family that resides there. It is possible to see them in the same area on the sand, day in, day out.
The reef on the west side harbours more colourful sea anemone and corals. In this area, one can singularly find Balcktip reef sharks with a length of about 1.5 to 2 meters.
The northern reef of the island is more upright and slopes down from 3 meter to about 25 meters. This area can be fun for diving. There is a high chance of seeing Eagle rays and turtles within that area. From time to time also dolphins approach the area. Because the island is at the entrance of the atoll, dolphin swarms pass by close to the island and enter and exit the atoll from there. This transit mostly takes place in the morning and at nightfall.
For those who want to surf at Ayada, there are three ideal spots for surfing very close to the island.
