The islands around Nyata boast white sand beaches which stretch into beautiful blue water down to pristine hard coral gardens and walls.

Day 10: Kalabahi Bay & Pura

Time to change underwater topography. First with 2 dives with sandy muck dive, in Muncky Mosque, in the Kalabahi bay where we can look for wonderpuss, and after in the slopes of the Island of Pura, where we will be drifting along a 2 miles long reef, absolutely covered with anemones. A unique experience not to be found in any other place in Indonesia. Let us be careful, as water here tends to drip in temperature, and we can expect them to be around 24 Celsius.
