Spanish Anchor is a dive site where you can see a coral-encrusted boat anchor. This ten foot large iron anchor is believed to be used for pulling the boat of the reef after it lost its winch and got stuck on the reef. It is a typical 17th or 18th century anchor with a classic arrow shape and wooden stock. Because of the Spanish trade routes in those years we believe it is Spanish, but this cannot be said with certainty. Near buoy M21, just northeast of Fire Coral Cave, it is a dive site perfect for beginners with characteristics such as moderate currents, good night dive possibilities and enough to see to make it interesting. Tangs, sergeant majors, parrot fish and barracuda's hover around the anchor and its reef.
