Faroe, which is commonly known as shelf atoll, is a ringed reef and mostly divided into three major areas — the outer rim, the inner lagoon, and inner patch reefs. The Barrier Reef looks like a continuous wall of coral, and has distinct zones — back reef lagoon, which are the hard corals and sea grass beds, and fore reef, which forms massive canyons called spurs and grooves, and makes an awesome diving site.
