The area surveyed lies at the northern end of Diani Beach and is intersected, approximately, by 39?35'E longitude and 4?17'S latitude. It forms a rectangle about 1000 X 500 m, the longer sides being bounded by the shoreline and the outer edge of the reef platform exposed at low-water levels. The lagoon or reef flat is 500 m wide. The southern portion of the shoreline is of fine coral sand, the northern consists of old eroded coral rock subject to seasonal sand movement, which may engulf many of the rocky pools.
