Great place to relax on the beach with good snorkling. I wasn't sure what to expect but the man-made biorick structures are quirky shapes providing really good hiding places for fish. Saw huge variety of fish including goat fish, puffers, many parrotfish and spadefish. You can hire a sunbed from one of the resorts on the beach and spend the... More

This project is a good cause. You can snorkel by yourself and see some colorful fishes. But it's not worth an extra trip, because the corals are almost all grey and you swim with lots of plastic. Anyway it's a good thing and if you're there, try it! You don't have to swim far out. Unfortunately we didn't find the... More

Well if it was only snorkel I should give it a 1 star as the visibility was really bad. From snorkel you really saw nothing! The next day I organised a private guide and scuba dive which allowed me to actually see the structures!! These structures are amazing!!! The philosophy behind it and the rehabilitation to date is really awesome... More

Access from the beach and the availability of snorkelling gear right on the beach made this experience very easy. Plenty of fish life close to the beach although it gets deeper quite quickly so smaller kids may not see as much beyond the first underwater structure. Definitely worth seeing what's happening with this project if you're staying nearby.

This is a man-made reef that grows coral on wire cages that have a small electrical current running through them to speed up the growth. That alone is interesting. The original reef is heavily damaged so it is great to see efforts made to reinstate the reef ecosystem. The amount of live coral and fish is not extensive, but the... More

Stayed at Tamar Sari and it was right in front of the hotel. Nice and easy. It's wonderful that they protect the corals. Saw nice fish Good place for beginners before going on open sea Bit rough to enter the sea.

Easy access off a semi-sandy beach. The Bio-Reef is better than snorkeling anywhere else from the shore that we could find. The visibility was not great because of the time of year, but there was a lot of submerged artwork that is populated with coral and fish. Best viewed at low tide. Good fun for the whole family.

The bioreef is worth a visit. The base structures are quite extensive and there are some good coral growths and fish. The project is still in its early stages and I hope that there will eventually be much more extensive coral growth. If you have the time take a boat tonMenganjan Island which has more extensive coral and is some... More

Easy to access, enter by the designated areas. A credit to the area and the people who care about the environment.

There's always someone who doesn't appreciate the effort that goes into rebuilding something destroyed. So it is with the bio rock project and the coral restoration project. Two decades ago the coral in the region was badly damaged by dynamite and cyanide fishing, nearly willing it all out. Today, it is slowly regrowing, and like a carefully tended garden, slowly...
