At the heart of the world famous Coral Triangle lies the Wakatobi islands, home to some of the most pristine reefs and bio-diverse waters in the world. Perfect for diving, the spectacular array of underwater life leaves those who submerge themselves into the crystal clear waters feeling in awe.
Under the waves is where Wakatobi displays its true beauty. Here you will find the second largest barrier reef in the world, second to the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. However, Wakatobi’s reef condition is far superior and the remote location of the islands gives divers a more intimate and private experience. The colourful coral of Wakatobi does not disappoint and encounters with manta rays, hammerhead sharks and even whale sharks furthers the water’s ability to amaze.
A truly unique and unforgettable diving experience found in Wakatobi is “Fluo-Diving”. “Fluo-Diving” is where you dive at night with UV lights and special masks that filter the light, letting you discover the magical, hidden secrets of the marine life. This new form of diving was pioneered on the Wakatobi islands and very few people have ever experienced this astonishing spectacle. As you submerge into the waters, the coral and fish explode with fluorescent colours in a way that you will have never seen before and their unimaginable beauty is guaranteed to blow you away. “Fluo-Diving” is only for experienced night time divers, however, those with less experience can still enjoy the mystical wonders whilst “Fluo-Snorkeling”.
After the adventures of Wakatobi’s underwater world of wonder, take a leisurely stroll down sandy beaches lined with coconut palms and gaze in awe as a fiery sunset paints the sky a vibrant blend of orange and red. These are the many treasures of Wakatobi that make it the ultimate island getaway.
