Yap Island - Big Bend


Big Bend - Stone Coral Gardens

Big Bend, an endless stone coral garden.

Big Bend lies to the west side of the island, an approximate 55-minute boat ride from Colonia. It is named after the big bend the barrier reef makes at the site.

The reef drops from about 5 meters in a small wall to about 15 meters, from where it slopes away as far as you can see.

The reef is covered with all kinds of perfectly healthy hard coral. Visibility is up to 50 meters, as it is everywhere outside the reef, but this of course depends on the tide.

This is a dive for everyone who enjoys beautiful and healthy hard coral. However the reef also offers two small walls with red soft coral and sea fans, located a little bit deeper.

Amazing drift dive with stunning hard corals!
