Marie Pampoen is a small fishing harbor with a bar/restaurant and a sandy beach mostly used by locals and divers. You can get into the water very easily here, as the sandy inlet is sheltered by two breakwaters.
The reef of Marie Pampoen pleasantly slopes down and it is quite hilly. You find some elk horn corals along the pier and many finger corals. When you dive along the reef, you will be able to see different kinds of morays, swarms of yellowtail snappers, spotted scorpionfish, big parrotfish and if you are lucky big Tarpons and Southern Stingrays on the sandy spots.
A car pile is also to be explored here, but you will need an advanced certification as the car pile is located at a depth of approx. 30 meters. Just outside the breakwaters, at approx. 30 meters, dumped cars, cranes, more scrap and a boat make up the underwater landscape. This scrap was dumped here in an effort to create an artificial reef.
