Pantai Merah or White Beach is the most frequently visited site in the park. Snorkelling is excellent from the beach and there is an amazing dive site in a small area around a rock that breaks the surface only at low tide. There as a great variety of tame marine life here with a good selection of critters such as Leaf Scorpionfishes, Blue ribbon Eels, Crocodile fishes, nudibranchs and more. This site is also excellent for night dives. Visibility varies and is best during ebbing tide.
Messages from readers:
Pantai Merah is also called Pink Beach because of its nearby beach with pink sand. This is a small critter dive around large coral outcrops and is a nice afternoon dive and a break from the strong currents of other sites. Large shoals of glass fish carpet the reef. Brush them aside to see nudibranchs, bearded scorpionfish, frogfish and seahorse. Ribbon eels can be seen poking out of the sand and rubble. Visibility is variable. It can be as good as 25m but can drop to 10m. Maximum depth is 30m.
