[Extract] Often associated with the word 'coral', a reef is in fact any rock, sandbar or other feature lying beneath the surface of the water that is shallow enough to be a hazard to shipping. These reefs can be formed either through biological processes - for example, coral growth - or physical processes such as the deposition of sand, wave erosion planing down rock outcrops or other natural processes. In general, the reefs that are most relevant and important within a tourism context are coral reefs.
