The drop off that runs parallel to the beach at Babi Island shows no signs of the 1992 tsunami that completely engulfed by the island and took over 1000 lives. The wall drops down to 50m and is covered with pristine soft corals and large gorgonian sea fans. Currents can be strong, making this a drift dive but when possible it's worth stopping and exploring every sea fan and coral crevice because the reef life is prolific. Frogfish and leaffish can be seen as can seahorse and ghost pipefish. Moray eels are numerous; ribbon eels can also be seen. Schools of glassfish, snapper and fusilier cover the wall. Parrotfish, butterflyfish, angelfish and wrasse are abundant. On the shallow reef flat it's possible to see eagle rays, reef sharks and turtles. Visibility is usually excellent.
