Derawan bukan hanya penyu, manta dan barracuda. Bagi saya yang sampai sekarang masih mencintai indahnya warna warni koral dan topografi yang tertutup "taman" bawah laut, ini adalah tempatnya.
Derawan is not only about sea turtles, manta rays and barracudas. For people like me who still love the beauty of colorful corals and the underwater world covered with "garden," this is the place.
|Plunge into the blue water|
|Beautiful reefs in maratua|
Maratua reef, sesuai namanya, terletak dekat dengan Pulau Maratua di Kepulauan Derawan, Kalimantan Timur. Hanya perlu naik kapal sekitar 7 menit untuk sampai ke lokasi dimana anda dapat menceburkan diri ke birunya laut dan menikmati taman surgawi bawah laut.
Just like the name itself, maratua reef is a diving spot located near Maratua Island in Derawan Islands, East Borneo. It only took 7 minutes boat ride to get into the spot where you can plunge yourself into the blue sea and enjoy the heavenly underwater garden.
|So many pyramid butterflyfish around the corals|
|A couple of fire dartfish|
With maximum depth of dive up to 59 feet, you'll find best view around 32 feet or even near the surface. Here's the sunlight gets inside the blue water and brings out the best color of corals and marine animals. Fishes with bright colors and corals makes me smile while taking all these photos.
|It's getting more and more crowded near the surface|
|Really love seeing group of purple anthias everywhere|
The currents in maratua reef tend to be calm as long as you dive at the right time which will depend on the season. When the sea is calm and the sun is bright, it's time to enjoy the beautiful garden in maratua reef. So, enjoy it!
