This is a nice and easy dive site for all divers that offers a great chance to spot the sunfish or Mola Mola. The dive site is made up of a sloping reef that is quite long and is punctuated with some large coral bommies and some small drop offs. The warm water, good visibility, varied marine life, and interesting topography make this a great dive site that should not be missed.
This is a deep dive that goes all the way down to 40 metres. Divers will most likely hover around the soft corals from 5 metres down to around 20 metres. The currents are normally mild and visibility can reach up to 30 metres although divers should expect around 15 metres of good visibility. The dive site is suitable for all divers and the varying depths offer divers the chance to explore the site according to their experience levels.
The corals here are superb and there is a good range of soft and hard corals. There are normally schools of reef fish fond here and turtles and eagle rays join them. There will be angelfish, clown fish, anemone fish, scorpionfish, moray eels, cuttle fish, tuna fish, different reef sharks, and many interesting types of nudibranch.
The best chances of spotting the elusive and rare Mola Mola are from July to October and they normally are found between 30 and 40 metres. Whilst there are other dive sites, where it is easier to spot these amazing fish, Buyuk is overall a very good dive site and seeing Mola Mola is the icing on an already amazing dive experience.
