Diving

Maratua is a large island with a massive lagoon, only partly rimmed by the island; the rest is fringed by reef and wall. A channel into the lagoon offers an incredible drift dive and the surrounding walls are loaded with hard and soft corals where you are likely to see large shoals of tuna and mackerel along with Hammerheads and Mantas.

Sangalaki is a one hour boat ride from Maratua and renowned for its sightings of Mantas. Also nearby is the uninhabited coral atoll that is Kakaban Island and its land-locked lake. The five square kilometre lake, surrounded by a 50-metre ridge, occupies most of the interior of the island, now a government nature reserve. The surrounding walls of the atoll feature schooling barracudas and Jacks; Leopard, and Grey Reef Sharks and the occasional Hammerhead.
