Batu Bolong offers truly world-class diving in the heart of the Komodo Island and National Park Reserve. Although it doesn’t look like much on the surface – in fact it somewhat resembles an odd doughnut-shaped rock hence the translation to “Hollow Rock” – a quick glance underwater reveals what all the spectacular dive stories are about.

Batu Bolong is a pinnacle situated between Tatawa and the main Komodo Island and stretches down to a dept of 75 metres. The site is overflowing with marine life of all shapes and sizes due in part to the rare spawning coral and underwater foliage that is prevalent in the area. You’ll see all sorts of fish action here – fish that are hiding, fish that are feeding, even fish that are laying eggs.

The slopes and walls of Batu Bolong are covered in an array of colours in the form of sponges and hard corals and hawksbill turtles can often be seen feeding off the corals in the area. On the northern side, the pinnacle has a steep drop to around 27 metres and offers fantastic sights within the gully. Divers should look out for reef sharks lurking by the ledge as well as dogtooth tuna, hawksbill turtles, giant trevallies and electric blue surgeonfish.
