Gili Trawangan –
After having a bacon-omelet breakfast I head back to Trawangan Dive. Today we have a scuba dive at Meno Wall. We also have some nets in our equipment to pick up garbage between the corals – this’ll keep the reef healthy. We are a small group again today: Apart from Fiona, there are two other German girls living in Dubai. A fairly steep wall leads down to a sandy plain at about 20m. I didn’t notice any significant currents during the descent as you are quite protected by Meno island. In terms of colorfulness this diving site can hardly be beaten. The reef looks extremely healthy and is certainly a merit of the sustainable tourism here. I can spot some parrotfish, turtles and later also a small baby Eagleray.
