Type:

Small island, reef slope, deep walls and shark cave.

Access:

25 minutes by boat, north of Padang Bai on the east coast.

Coral Reef State:

Very good coverage of hard and soft corals.

Fish Species:

Excellent number. Moray eels, napoleon wrasses, tunas, barracudas, turtles, octopus, cuttlefish. High chance of seeing sharks (white tip reef sharks).

Current:

Moderate to strong, normally big surge in the afternoon.

Visibility:

25m+ (best June-October).

Note:

Can be a difficult site around full and new moon (down currents). Near or inside the cave, divers constantly need to equalise due to the effect of the swell!

Highlights:

Sleeping white tips in the shark cave down at 12 meters. The view from the darkness inside the cave into the crystal-clear blue water full of swirling fish outside is a picture you'll never forget.
