Tatawa Kecil is a small island and is a magical world class dive site for a drifting! Be careful the current there can be very strong and it is not an easy dive site. No place for inexperienced divers! The dive site is a mixed of a very nice reef, rock formations and small caves. The water is full of fishes with numerous pellagics and sharks patrolling the area. Manta rays are often seen on the coral plateau. Sometimes dugong are also there! The hard coral is also fantastic. Is is also possible to snorkel here with manta rays when they are around :-)
