Diving in Anambas, you're likely to come across quite a varied mix of marine wildlife, including plenty of macro. Count on seeing various ray species, grouper, barracudas, moray eels, sharks and numerous reef-dwelling fish. Green and hawksbill turtles are likely to make an appearance, as well as, at times, dolphins.
Friendly turtles abound
Not a regular per se, but whale sharks have been spotted in the Anambas area, doubtless due to these creatures' migratory habits, given that they tend to travel along the Peninsular Malaysia seaboard yearly.
Some dive go-to spots to include in your Anambas diving expedition are: Igara Wreck, Seven Skies, Pulau Tokong Malang Biru and Pulau Repong to name just a few. But nothing gets the excitement going more than spots that have never been dived before. Given the countless Anambas islands that have yet to be visited, let alone explored, diving where no one has dived before is a real option here.

About a one-hour speedboat ride away from Tarempa, but utterly secluded and offering a stunning castaway beach that has to be seen to be believed. Has a bonus not-that-accessible beach tucked in behind the island that is a must-see.See More
With gorgeous bounty beaches on either side of the island, there's plenty to explore on Semut. And it's surrounded by other islands so sheltered from any over-zealous elements. Great island for a fresh seafood beach BBQ.See More
