Massive boulder coral, (Gardineroseris planulata) diver serving as the point of reference. This relatively unknown dive destination not far from Lembeh Strait is slowly getting its share of attention because of its stunning coral reefs. This coral species is normally found from the Red Sea to Central America, and is relatively uncommon in this part of the world. It is slow-growing, so this colony must be several thousand years old!
