"I am hard pressed to think of anywhere on earth that has this combination of vibrant health, diversity and beauty." - Prof Charles Veron, world's most widely published reef scientist, refering to the reefs of Kimbe Bay.
It is one of the few places left in the world where a diver can see macro critters, pelagics, and big stuff, as well as fantastic soft and hard corals. The often misused and abused adjective “pristine” is actually appropriate here, due to low fishing pressure in the area in comparison to other areas of the Coral Triangle, no dynamite fishing, and thanks to a system implemented by dive resorts whereby local reef "owners" receiving a small fee for every diver that visits "their" reef. As a result elders make sure that the reefs are not fished.
