Together the 13 connected coral reef islands are just 14 square kilometers, but the waters have a depth of 2,000, nurturing a rich marine life. All forms of diving are done from the lone resort located in this artificial island. Sub-surface you can expect to find, big pelagics, sheer walls and sharks as well as a central lagoon consisting to smaller marine life.
Layang Layang is filled with beautiful man size gorgonians in crystal clear waters. Most are found below a depth of 40 feet. The eastern part is particularly rich in gorgonians and are more tightly packed and smaller in size. The larger ones are found deeper down and tend to stand by themselves filtering the food from the gentle currents.
