This site is famous for having some of the most astonishing coral gardens in the Komodo National Park. Given the diversity of coral in the national park, this makes the site one of the best coral gardens in the world.

In fact, there is so much coral to be seen, it is worth doing this dive more than once, and it definitely will be entertaining every time you dive it.

To start the dive, you enter from in front of a small beach with the dive site at 6 meters depth. You then allow the current to take you on a drift dive above the reef at a depth of about 25 meters. If the current is not too strong, you can make your way back to the start or wait for a dive boat to come and pick you up.

The size of the garden means that you can drift along for hundreds of meters with the vast corals underneath you as you dive. You will be accompanied by cuttlefish, turtles, lionfish, triggerfish, batfish and it is easy to spot sharks swimming amongst the gardens.

Small invertebrates are also very common, making this spot ideal for macro divers and especially for macro photographers.
