The Horseshoe Reef has several different facies which are back reef, reef
crest and reef front. The reef supports one of the world's most diverse
and active ecosystems. The flora and fauna found are related to what reef
facies they are located in. Above is a sea fan and it will be found in
certain reef facies where it's physical features are best suited. For further
