Dive site (some of our favorite)

Great wall of Pantar

One of Indonesia’s most beautiful wall dives is situated on Pantar Strait. Covered in bright pink and orange soft corals and hundreds of anthias, this site is not be missed. The dive site’s topography is very interesting and includes an overhang where a variety of different flatworms and nudibranchs can be found.

Clown Valley

Situated in the South of Pulau Pura, this dive site is known worldwide for its uniqueness. You would be hard pressed to see this concentration of anemones anywhere else in the world. This sloping dive site is carpeted in beautiful soft anemones housing clownfish and other reef fish. Don’t forget to look into the blue for cruising pelagics. It’s not uncommon to spot mola-mola and thresher sharks here. Be prepared for slightly colder water with some interesting thermoclines.

House reef

The resort’s house reef is one of the best we have ever dived. It is surrounded by healthy coral and includes a jetty teeming with life. From stonefish to leaf scorpionfish to banded pipefish, there is always something new to see. Don’t forget that mandarin fish can be seen here at any time of day.

Red sand beach and Red Wall

Situated to the North of Pulau Pura, this dive site offers unique red sandy slopes on one side and a wall that drops to a depth of 35 meters on the other side. The overhang is great for macro and it’s not un-common to see schools of sweetlips and black snappers cruising. Another unique feature of this site are the bubbling gas vents which are part of Gugung Maru’s volcanic system.

Black Rhino

This site hosts a black sandy bottom, great visibility and macro life that is second to none. This is one of the best dive sites to see one of our favorite fish; the rhinopias. Paddle flap, weedy and lacey rhinopias are all found here as well as frogfish and a wide variety of nudibranch.

Schools out

We never get tired of seeing this site’s beautiful anthias as they school in and out of this shallow water reef. You might also spot banded sea snakes, giant moray eels and reef sharks on your dive here.

Ghost town

This dive site is named after one of our favorite critters, the ghost pipefish. At the right time of the year, it is easy to spot multiple ghost pipefish here as well as rhinopias, frogfish, cuttlefish, octopus and shrimps of all kinds.

Pertamina Pier

Under the fuel depot of Pertamina lies a sandy bottom leading to a rocky slope. This is a great site to spot critters such as seahorses of all kinds, coleman shrimps and zebra crabs. Mandarin fish, frog fish and ghost pipe can also be seen here.
