Comments Lissenung is simply brilliant. Never mind no hot water showers this is a true ECO resort. The house reef is superb with a school of jacks, clown fish of various types, snappers and al matter of other things within 50 metres of the dive shop and super easy beach entry. The open water dives and wrecks are all there. Dive Albatross Passage every morning is recommended with pygmy seahorses at one end for a macro dive (hard to take off the wide angle thou) . I was there for 10 days diving and DEFINIELY going back for another 10 as really did less than half the dive sites. Put it on the bucket list and combine with Walinidi/FeBrina, Tawali or Golden Dawn Easter fields. Simply superb centre of Coral Triangle diving.

Lissenung accommodates up to 14 guests so it is super personal service and you can request dive sites or type of diving. There are Denise Pygmy Seahorses at the far end of Albatross Passage and Kavan dive sites.
