Comments Wow! Diving was fantastic - muck diving at its finest. The dive guide asks what you are looking to see and will take you to the sites where you will see what you want, such as pygmy seahorses, ghost pipefish, ornate ghost pipefish, flambouyant cuttlefish, mimick octopus, fireclam, seahorses, nudi branches and more.
Food was very good, providing you appreciate local cuisine. Do not come here expecting hamburgers, hotdogs and pizza. The local staff prepares wonderful local cuisine with pomme frite each night at dinner as the owner is Dutch. Breakfast is local with fruit, crepes, eggs and nasi goreng. Very good and all fresh! Meals are served family style. The staff is remarkably helpful and friendly. There is a free laundry service and internet use. The most guests you will encounter is 9 others, as there are only 5 guesthouses. This is a diver's paradise. If you are looking for luxury and spa-like facilities, this is not the place for you. If you just need a clean place to crash and extraordinary diving for a reasonable price with helpful, friendly staff - this is the place for you. Dive boats are well maintained and comfortable with a toilet on some boats. Nitrox is available for an extra charge.
