Maomao Arch

This arch takes a diver from the western side of the island to the eastern side. Walls outside the arch reach depth of 30m, while the inside of the arch shallows up to just 5m. On the eastern side to the right there is a group of large boulders and a small cave at around 20m.

Swimming through the arch, the walls are colourful and covered by invertebrates. Pink and Blue Maomao can be found schooling here amongst other reef fish.
