This dive site gets its name from the local village also called Tanjung Parigi and is a great vertical wall that has a partially exposed reef. It is one of the main dive sites located on Bunaken Island and should be included to any dive itinerary to Bunaken Island. The area is part of the Bunaken Marine Park and so is protected from fishing and other damaging activities. This has helped the marine life population, which is increasing in size and variety.

The wall has some damage and the top of the reef is also partially damaged but it is still in good shape. The visibility is excellent with an average of about 30 metres. The dive is normally in between 15 and 30 metres and the currents can sometimes be strong. It is rated as a site for advanced divers.

There are many black corals, gorgonian sea fans, and barrel sponges at this site and they are in good condition. They host a variety of marine life including large pelagic fish such as trevallies and large Jack fish. The site is also home to parrotfish, rabbitfish, surgeonfish, scorpion fish, and lionfish. Amongst the corals, divers should look out for smaller marine life such as nudibranchs and shrimp.
