Walea was the highlight, climax, the Grande Finale of my this years
vacation (Thailand - Burma, Philippines - Tubbataha Reef). I enjoyed the
tranquillity and beautiful setting of the place. The dives were
magnificent, exactly the ideal mixture for me, some amazing reef dives with
a variety and abundance of fish, coral and sponges I´ve seldom seen
before - the thrilling strong current dives, the dives into the deep blue
with five hammerheads (!!!), huge thuna and schools of barracuda and jacks.
The meals, that special indonesian italian creation, were mouth watering
delicious and a real treat.
