Fan Corals forest at east cost of Bonaire.

The East Coast of Bonaire Island is characterized by strong currents and surges occurring during the all year. For this reaso the sea bottom is populated mainly of flexible corals capables to stand by the power of the perpetual idrodynamism of the ocean. Fan corals are perfect colonizers of this environment, creating a real "forest of corals".
