Extraordinary diving in an untouched nature

Diving sites

In Walea's Marine Park diving sites are really numerous. The variety of environments and life forms that can be found here make every dive an unforgettable and unrepeatable experience. Even the same site in two different moments is not the same.
A sea like this, so full in terms of life forms, gives you the possibility of many different and occasional encounters.
Dive sites are quite close and easily reachable by speedboats.
As always, the most beautiful colours and coral diversity can be found in shallow water, but in some places it is worthwhile to dive deeper profiles.
The divers who arrive to Walea can appreciate the rarity of its beautiful and pristine reefs, enhanced by ideal environmental conditions and by the skills of dive guides to find amazing critters like pygmy seahorse, ghost pipefish, nudibranchs, crustaceans and much more.
The dive sites offer is wide and includes coral gardens and drop offs, from easy levels for beginner divers to more challenging current dives for expert divers.
Below you may find a list of the main dive sites.
