South Steps dive site is located at the very south of the seawall in Sunabe, just by the port in Mihama, American Village. This site is blessed with pool-like conditions very often, which is why it is a favorite location for beginners and courses. As you enter the water from the stairs, you can immediately go through a narrow swim-through, known as the keyhole. It opens up into a wide sandy area to the left and coral mounds to the right. The abundant soft coral here is home to many small fish and critters.
