There is an abundance of exotic diversity in the many dive sites off Bangka Island. Some are accessible by shore, while others are visited by resort dayboats and/or liveaboards. There are many great walls and pinnacles along the east and north-east, inhabited by both large and small fish. Exquisite hard table corals and a riot of colored soft corals can be found here too. In the east, tiny Pontohi Pygmy seahorses cling to vertical walls where they're challenging to find and photograph in the current. Also to the east are sandy muck dives boasting the Flamboyant Cuttlefish, always an iridescent treat. Many great macro dives are to the west, where a stunning variety of Nudibranches can be found. The tiny knobby pink Pygmy Seahorses, Hippocampus Barbiganti, cling to pink gorgonian sea fans, never failing to impress. All in all, the diving in Indonesia is spectacular, and the diving off Bangka Island did not disappoint in May-June 2010.

This Spinecheek Anemonefish was photographed off Bangka Island, just north of North Sulawesi. Clownfish are a favourite subject of mine, and this little guy, very cute and curious, turned just right, rewarding my patience and my Canon 20D!
