Goa Besar, on the southern side of Farondi is a wall dive with a tunnel at 25 meters that is inhabited by midnight snapper and shy Indonesian sweetlips. The 20 meter long tunnel is framed with sponges and soft corals. Look in black coral bushes for ornate ghost pipefish. Further along the wall huge gorgonian sea fans are home to many pygmy seahorses. There is more than one variety here including Hippocampus Bargibanti which is commonly pink/white and bobbly plus Hippocampus Denise which is slightly smaller and often more orange in color. These critters are incredibly hard to spot as they are so well camouflaged with the gorgonians but there are more of them at this dive site making the task of finding them a bit easier. Large schools of fish cover the wall including fusilier and surgeonfish, damsels and anthias.
