Banda islands are supposed to have one of the most beautiful coral reefs in the world. And we have to agree. We’ve snorkeled in Bandaneira, on Ai and Hatta and the coral reef is amazing. Huge corals every shape and size, moving in its life and color.
Good thing hat we had our own masks, it’s just easier and cheaper, too 🙂 We never forgot the baby shampoo for anti-fogging, works like a charm. We didn’t have dins but I would reccomend them to everyone who plans to go there – currents can be quite strong. Or if you need protection from a big trigger fish (not that we had to) who have crazy teeth like in the top picture of this post 🙂
We saw loads of fish, black tip shark, several turtles, Napoleon wrass at least 1,5 m big, ugly moray eels, anemone fish (my favorite! I just love how worried they look when you check them out. And they even have guts to try to scare you by swimming to your face! So cute.) and a beautiful nudie branch.
We were lucky to have friendly neighbors who borrowed us their underwater camera and we captured some of the underwater beauty.
Take a look at the gazillion pictures! 😀
