This is a great dive site with a sandy bottom and very little current. It is not often rated very highly but this is a mistake, as it offers a great dive experience with a large abundance of life. It is often used as a dive site for courses and for refresher courses but it is a great site for all types of divers.

The dive site is a drift dive over a stunning coral garden with the best conditions being currents towards the south. The currents take divers over the coral garden at around 18 metres to 25 meters with a sandy bottom in the deeper parts.

Divers can spot most of the species to be found in the Komodo region and these include blue spotted stingrays that are sighted frequently. Divers can also spot white tip reef sharks, black tip reef sharks, sweetlips, bumphead parrotfish, and cuttle fish. Larger pelagic fish and other rarer sharks are also common and divers have spotted dugongs, bamboo sharks, and nurse sharks. There is also a cleaning station for manta rays, which usually means that divers can spot these majestic rays. Divers are almost guaranteed to see turtles amongst the shallower coral reefs. Macro life is also diverse with many nudibranchs, ornate ghost pipefish, scorpionfish, leaf fish, and frogfish.
