If you are diving in the Komodo area and you want some muck diving, then this is the dive site. This famous macro dive site is often known as the Lembeh Straits dive site of the Komodo area. The site consists of not much more than a shallow coral patch that is broken up in places. Divers will believe that this is devoid of marine life but further exploration will reveal many different types of fish species and other marine animals.
The site ranges from around 8 metres to 15 metres and there are species found here that are not found in other parts of the Komodo region. Divers are often surprised by the absence of colourful corals and in that way, it is a unique dive spot in the Komodo region. Instead, divers will find the best muck diving site with plenty of rubble and broken coral to explore.
Divers can expect to see many species of nudibranch, juvenile harlequin sweetlips, ghost pipefish, pygmy seahorses, frogfish, mandarin fish, and ribbon eels. It has been described as a type of treasure hunt as most divers will spot something that they have never seen before. Macro photographers will need to spend a few dives on the site if they want to try to capture everything that is on show here.
