The Best Komodo Snorkeling Spots
Siaba Besar is a snorkeler’s dream, with calm waters and an abundance of marine life. This shallow, protected bay is perfect for beginners or those looking for a relaxing Komodo snorkeling experience. Spotting turtles here is the highlight and sometimes snorkelers can swim among tens of them.
Pink Beach (Pantai Merah)
One of only seven pink sand beaches in the world, Pink Beach in Komodo is a must-visit spot for Komodo snorkeling. The distinctive color comes from microscopic red coral fragments mixed with the white sand. Just a few meters offshore, you’ll find a breathtaking coral garden teeming with colorful fish, sea turtles, and even reef sharks. It is often a popular spot when doing island hopping in Komodo.
As the name suggests, Manta Point is the place to go for unforgettable encounters with the majestic Manta Rays. These gentle giants gracefully glide through the water, feeding on plankton. Although sightings are never guaranteed, your chances are high at Manta Point. Typically when we don’t see Manta Rays here, we change spot and go to the nearby Mawan, the second most popular Manta spot for Komodo snorkeling.
