When the tide recedes in the Maldro Reefs, the coral jutting out of the water turns into an expansive, colorful forest that can be walked among. Seawater cascades down from where it's collected in the tops of the coral, creating waterfalls along the sandy paths, and jagged dark rocks serve as a boundary between the rest of the ocean and the Maldro Reefs. Even during high tide, one can still walk around the gargantuan coral for the same species of coral grow on land as well, albeit less in number and somewhat damaged from tourists or storms. Regardless of where one goes in the Maldro Reefs, it's clear why the reefs are compared to a forest so often.
