Indonesia :: Kalimantan : Derawan

Derawan has several diving terrains ranging from walls to caverns and fringing reefs. The pear shaped island is closer inland so visibility often isnt as good, this shouldnt deter the macro enthusiast though. One of the more popular spots is the excellent house reef beneath the jetty where the shallow water plays home to all manner of critters such as cuttlefish, lobster, ghost pipefish, seahorses and nudibranchs. Blue Trigger Wall is where a number of red-toothed triggerfish can be found, it drops down to around 20 meters. The island is also popular with green turtles that use it as a breeding ground laying their eggs at night.
