Batee Gla (Medium – Difficult)

The dramatic underwater peninsular, formed by giant granite boulders, is the centre piece of this dive site.  The southern side is a flat sandy bottom with large coral bommies home to many varieties of reef fish and stingrays, moving slowly deeper you can find yourselves surrounded by garden eels.  Drift down and along the slope looking for ribbon eels, honeycomb moray eels and lionfish.  At the tip of the peninsular look under the boulders for harlequin and oriental sweetlips.  Lucky divers can be rewarded by manta ray, bumphead parrotfish and turtle sightings.  This dive can be started from the wall on the northern side of the peninsular, offering almost endless views on days with good visibility.
