    The Tunnel

    The Tunnel is situated basically towards the south of Island Resort in Layang Layang, is reasonably protected, as an outcome features some of the chances for diving together with pelagic of which some other dive spots in Layang Layang can feature.

    In its place, it has a montage of hard coral reefs of plate corals, table corals, brain corals, mushroom corals, and staghorn corals. The Tunnel obtains its name coming from the vertical crevices which the coral colonies build, developing “chimneys” in which divers can check out up close for a few moray eels as well as macro marine life such as small crustaceans, squat lobsters and mollusks.

    The Tunnel is a superb dive site for an overnight dive, looking at the nocturnal tricks of crayfish, crinoids, sea urchins, hermit crabs, starfish and mantis shrimp.
