“Amazing place to dive or snorkel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

The most quiet place around Sabang island. You can swim there or take a small boat. There are bungalows and small beach restaurants there too but not very busy. Snorkeling/diving as a must.

“clear water and fishes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

when first i went there what i saw? a very crystal clear water and you can see the coral even you still on the road side.
its very nice place for snorkeling, diving and swimming..
iboih people really take care of the fishes, so when we snorkeling we can see a lot of fishes.
best place to visit. but if you plan to stay at iboih its a good choice. but if you go with your familly and small kids with you better choose staying at nagoya inn. because beach not recommended for kids.
the negative is that goverment must repair all the broken things and buid some toilet or dressing room at there..

“Amazing snorkeling!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

The numerous colourful fish and the coralls are amazing. You must do snorkeling there. You have to rent a boat to take you to the island. The price is 200.000 rupiah but you can bargain. Make sure you go to the front side of the island because the seabed at the rear of the island is damaged from the tsunami.
