Diving Barefoot Manta Island
Barefoot Manta Island, also known as Drawaqa Island, is named after the numerous manta rays that congregate here to feed in the channel off Manta-Ray Beach. This place is located in the southern Yasawa Islands and is a modest, eco-friendly, backpacker’s paradise. The most popular activity on this island is diving with manta rays. Barefoot Manta Island has a manta ray research facility with a dedicated team of marine biologists and conservationists researching the population and behavior of the mantas that aggregate here. Make sure you also dive in Barefoot Manta’s wrecks, Glory and Navigator.
