Mawan

(Central Komodo)

Relatively close to Siaba Besar on the west side, this small island always offers pleasant and unexpected surprises.

It is suitable for experienced divers and not given the reduced depth, but only when the current conditions are optimal. Just a few moments after being underwater, above a bottom mostly composed of broken corals, you have the opportunity to cross sharks and sting rays. Continuing southwards, we will find ourselves flying over a coral garden of such beauty that will leave everyone speechless. Hard and soft corals, small seafans, colorful sponges and anemones are the ideal habitat for nudibranchs, shrimps, crabs and small moray eels.

The surprise arrives in the final arrived at the sandy slope, where cleaning stations generally host a certain number of manta rays, many of which are extremely intrigued by the presence of strange visitors, will approach to take a look.
