This is a small island with a huge lake inside. After Palau it is the best place in the world to find non-stinging jellyfish. It is an unforgettable experience to swim without fear surrounded by jellies.
If you go there don't forget to explore the magnificent shoreline. The overhanging branches of the trees are covered in colourful sponges and some beautiful nudis can be found here.

Sponges growing on the overhanging branches of the trees in the jellyfish lake of Kakaban island. I used a 10.5mm lens on a Nikon D200 camera with both my Inon strobes underwater on the side of the housing to get this shot.

Picture taken at Kakaban jelly fish lake in Indonesia. With a Sony 6500 camera, nautical housing and Inon 240 strobe. I made this round circle manually. The sky looks like the earth and the jelly fish looks like a space ship.
