The snorkeling there is famous for :
- The Nest (underwater statues)
- Artificial reef with old scooters
- many fishes, coral reef
- and of course the turtles
This post and video is only about the Nest and the scooters artificial reef.
However, this is a picture about how you can see the turte during your trip (don’t touch the sea turtle):
Near the west coast of Gili Meno, there is the Nest.
It is an underwater sculpture made by Jason de Caires Taylor.
The depth is 4 meters, so it is easy to swim above this underwater sculpture.
The underwater scooters
At the south-east of Gili Trawangan, there is an artificial reef made with old scooters.
The reef is in shallow water, 3-4 meters.
