Went on a diving holiday for the second time here. My boyfriend has been coming here for years now and here is why: the house riff is amazing. Since I am only an open water diver with at start of the holiday less then 20 dives, I am not trained yet to do dives with high current, entering/exiting on big boats, caves etc. The beach and diving centre are less than 5 minutes walk. Once equipped in your diving equipment, you can immediately walk into the sea and start your dive. There is so much to see for me as a beginner and for the rest of the group who have made 100++ dives. Most beautiful sites at around 8 meters. We stayed in a hut: good beds, no bathroom, no aircon. The shared bathrooms and toilets are cleaned multiple times a day and always in perfect condition. There is always enough hot water to take a warm shower. If you are willing to pay more, you can book the chalets with bathroom and aircon. The restaurant is suberb: great freshly cooked food, a lot of dishes to choose from, never had stomach trouble because of the food. The staff is really nice and really helpful. Overall, we are definitely planning another trip back to Nakari again.
