In Puerto Rico a very nice confined bay and beach named Playa Amadores was build. The sand on the beach is imported coral sand from the Sahara. To prevent that the sand disappears in the open sea a manmade barrier of natural rock was put in the bay. This barrier attracted lots of marine life like arrowhead crabs, razorfish, goldline breams, parrotfish, hermit crabs, sea cucumbers, urchins, lizardfish, etc. On the outside wall of the barrier we can often enjoy the spectacle of thousands of Sardine all moving in the same direction and forming real "Sardineballs".
