When you look out from our jetty, the buoy of Pinnacle I glares at the horizon. Just of shore from Pristine Paradise this standalone rock formation rises up from the deep. It is one of Una Una’s most well-known dive sites and for good reason. Also known as Fishmania, this dive site shows innumerable species of aquatic life, like massive tunas, eagle rays and schools of jackfish. One dive is often not even enough to take it all in, so who is up for seconds?

Most famous dive site of Una Una
Is it a wall? No. Is it a coral terrace? No. It’s both! The Kingstonwall site offers you the opportunity to see bigger fish swimming around, like eagle rays, Napoleon wrasses or turtles. The dive site raises from the deep like a fortress. The wall has many ‘hidden doors’ that are the entrances to small caves and crevices. With its dramatic rock formations and the unique dancing of the light, this dive site could easily form the back drop of a fantasy novel.
Maximum depth: 30+ meters

Opportunity to see the bigger stuff
Named after Una Una’s south cape ‘Apollo’, this is the spot were a school of hundreds (sometimes thousand plus) of barracuda live. We might end up inside the tornado of barracudas because they’re really curious about our bubbles. The coral is so healthy that plenty of other sea creatures find themselves a nice home here. What’s more to say? Well, after this dive you’re most welcome to enjoy a cup of tea or coffee at a very friendly local called Masdin before heading out to the next dive.

Ever wondered where wall dives start? Then you should visit Greta’s. This dive site is on the edge of the wall and the sloping bottom. A perfect spot for a confetti of colorful fish on plenty of intact soft corals. And as this is the neighbor of Kingstonwall, sneak peek into the blue for unpredictable ‘big’ surprises!

Wreck / Jam
Right in front of Pristine Paradise, an old out-of-order public boat sank a few years ago. Here you may find ornate ghost pipefish, shrimps and snappers living in and around the wreck. A couple of minutes swimming away we find a big flat area called Jam. This dive site hosts a small school of barracuda, moray eels and at the end of the dive you make your safety stop right above massive sea cucumbers.
