Although it lies in the middle of an industrial triangle and major shipping lanes, Cyrene has some of Singapore's most amazing shores. Although it is not very reefy, there are some very large hard corals here. Most of them were nice and brown!
There are many leathery soft corals on the eastern end of Cyrene. Some of them were quite large.
Omeletteleathery soft coral with 'fuzzy' growth on it. The situation for leathery soft corals was better than what I saw on the western shore of Cyrene two months ago in Jun 2020.
Frilly anemones and one Giant carpet anemone, all were alright. The Leathery sea fan near the landing point seems fine and had many Tiny colourfulbrittle stars on it.
Tape seagrasses were mostly still cropped short. While most of the seagrasses were fresh and green, free of ephiphytes, some patches were covered with a black fuzzy growth or brownish mat. I didn't survey the more seagrassy areas.
