Scuba diving in Pink Beach

The Pink Beach site has good conditions for night diving. This dive is also known to be a "crossroads" location, where forceful currents change their direction, and the northern tropical waters change into the moderate seas of the south.

Pink Beach is a year-round dive destination, but the best time to dive is from April to November. April has the best visibility. The sea water temperature ranges from 25-28C/77-82F throughout the year.
