In a bay to the west of Clara Island in the shadow of Sharp Peak (hence the name), lies this submerged pinnacle. Coated from top to bottom in Cup Corals that are all open when done as a sunset dive, this site also has a healthy covering of Hemprich's Soft Corals and White Bush Corals. Plenty of Sweetlips and Snapper surround the pinnacle with schools of Unicorn Fish and Surgeon Fish ever present. Plenty of macro action, as in all the bays that can suffer with visibility in Myanmar, including a wide selection of Glossodoris and Chromodoris Nudibranchs and several types of Pipe Fish. Kuhl's Rays rest on the sand and there have even been sightings of Eagle Rays here.
