Kuda Giri (Wreck) / Potato Reef

The Kuda Giri is a very pretty, old wreck accessible by short swim from the pinnacle. This is a boat dive with an excellent, small wreck sitting next to a very well established giri (pinnacle) with lots of small caves and overhangs.

The outside of the ship is covered with corals, algae, sponges, colorful sea squirts, and little fish with the odd grey frogfish found on the deck.
