Makasser Reef (Manta Point)
Considered by many experts in the field as well as marine biologists as one of the best sanctuaries, globally, for a close encounter with the magnificent manta rays.
The dive starts close to the rock, on a 5-6 m deep coral garden, to get down to 28-30 m. The coral garden on the top hosts an impressive amount of invertebrates and thousands of colorful reef fishes. Big fishes , as sharks, napoleon wrasses, giant trevallies, big emperors and schools of fusiliers and surgeon fishes swim nearby the the steep walls.
Although the shallow water coral garden is relatively small, the site is interesting for snorkelers for the good chances to spot big fishes.
