This island resembles a piece of Swiss Cheese due to its abundance of caverns. Labas Island has two dive sites to offer the head or the tail, with both being equally challenging and simply fascinating. Whether you are swimming through the labyrinth of swim troughs or gliding along the dense coral garden at a depth of 18 metres, both experiences will create lasting memories. Labas Island with its overgrown rock formation makes for an easy dive. You can just lazily glide along the fan and soft corals or visit the remains of a Japanese Fishing Boat. If snorkeling is your thing this is a great place to partake.
