Obyan Beach

OBYAN BEACH (B/S)- Located near Naftan Point, this site has some of the best visibility on the island. On a good day, there will be 150 + feet of visibility. After entering through the first reef, there is a beautiful patch reef with hundreds of small fish and some interesting animals to see. The second reef starts at about 50 feet where one finds Barracuda, sharks, and garden eels. This dive site is ideal for all skill levels, especially people interested in photography.

Visibility: 50ft - 150ft

Current: Ranges from none to moderate. If a current is present, drifting from the East side of the beach to the West side (the current is usually East to West) is an excellent option.
