Takat Malang

Takat Malang

This site is to the North of the 3 islands, with a maximum depth of 40m and an average dive depth of 25m. This site is an excellent dive which offers you all the positive factors of Simon's reef and the added bonus of Deep Turbo's topography. Takat Malang is made up of a collection of large coral heads (Takats) arranged in a sloping bed, beginning with a plateau at 15m. There are about 10 major Takats, as if someone has been at work on the reef with a giant carving chisel, each Takat is sculpted with overhangs, outcrops and swim through. This dive site will provide you with the same excellent diversity in corals as those found on Simon's reef. The Takats are covered in soft and hard coral varieties growing on top of the stony outcrops, including some very big Gorgonian fans and table corals. The channels between the Takats are interesting, with a large concentration of the bigger reef fish and fascinating topography. The marine life is quite similar to that found on Simons Reef, you will find Snappers, Sweet Lips, Parrotfish, Angelfish, Triggerfish, Trevallies, Tuna, large Barracuda, Moray eels, large Green Sea turtles and reef sharks.
