#1 of 8 in Things to do in Bitung
Experience the mysterious and abstract underwater world of Lembeh Strait. The strait is best explored by "muck diving": exploring the ocean floor and the strange marine life that gathers there. Grab an underwater camera and enjoy the fantastic photography opportunities that these dives offer. You'll be seeing lionfish, nudibranchs, octopuses, and many other exotic species. If this is your first time, hire a guide who can help you find some of the little creatures that hide from plain sight.

  • It's awful to say but one sometimes has the impression to dive in a "plastic trash" However, critters live there are incredibly beautiful. Total paradox!

  • I wasn't expecting what I found. A number of strange and at the same time fascinating creatures. Easy dives where you can enjoy unhurried.
