This is one of the most famous and most visited dive sites in the Komodo national park. It is found northeast of the Pulau Punya and is also called Pantai Merah. The nearby beach is very famous for the red sand that has been created by microscopic animals that produce red and pink light found living on the reef. The dive site has a sandy-sloped bottom that is also made up of this pink sand creating a very unusual and unique dive site.

The site is made up of many cracks and crevices for divers to explore. The dive is quite shallow with a maximum depth of only 30 metres and divers will find themselves averaging at around 17 metres. Visibility is fantastic with a maximum of 25 metres and the current is normally mild but it can pick up. Divers can visit the site all year around but the best time is from April through to November with the best visibility being in April. The dive site has a crossroads feature, which is when a dive site is situated where strong currents change direction, in this case when the northerly waters merge into the southerly calmer waters.

There is a good level of fish life here and some great corals. As the water temperature here is lower because of the crossroads effect, the marine life found here is very different to other nearby dive sites. Divers will fine frogfish, leaf fish, mandarin fish, Coleman shrimp, nudibranchs, Pegasus sea moths, snake eels, crocodile fish, ribbon ells, and devilfish. There are many large soft corals found here with many yellow sea cucumbers and feather stars to be found as well.
