Coral reefs are actually made by coral polyps to serve as an exoskeleton. Bathtub reef, however, is made by worms. These worms ingest sand and extract nutrients. Afterward, the sand is excreted and hardens.
Over time, this process has created a very small barrier reef a hundred feet from shore.
The calm water created on the inside of the reef provides a wonderful place for children to adapt to the ocean and play safely. Lifeguards watch from the beach to provide assurance and assistance when needed.
