Diving around Balu Bolong Komodo is very, very beautiful, the fishes, coral, plants, everything. We only did one day trip with three dives but we’d wish we could have stayed here longer.

If you love to dive, don't miss this spot. One the best coral gardens I've ever seen. Then, ask your divemaster to go to Castle rock and shotgun!

This is an amazing place to snorkle. Mainly because many times mantas are seen in here. However, do not go alone as it usually has high currents.
