Cozy and tranquil dive resort with good vibes, chill music and yummy food (go for banana pancakes!). Super friendly staff and professional management who make you feel part of their family. Diving is great for macro and beautiful corals. And if you are a bird fan, you will hear and spot plenty of species there. Will definitely continue to visit regularly!
Hidden gem! Surrounded peacefully with trees, away from the hustle bustle of the city. Staffs are friendly and accommodation is perfect for the getaway. Diving spots are cool and if you're lucky, you can see a whale shark during the season 🤩
