The best time to see the mantas for which Manta Point is famous is from May to November. Coral outcrops at about 8m are a ‘cleaning station’, where cleaner wrasse feed on parasites from the mantas’ wings. Cliffs, coral tables, turtles, sharks and numerous reef fish are other attractions, as are the nearby Lankan Caves.
