Sataya Gota Kebir is considered the "Garden of Eden in the afternoon" and offers a perfect opportunity to experience the creatures of the night. Whether inexperienced or "Cousteau's little brother" - here everyone finds his adventure. Explore the plateau and dive into the undiscovered lagoon!
Sataya Gota Kebir - "Kebir" means "big" - is located west of the main Sataya reef. The water depth in the area that is dived is from 5 to 25m. The reef is about 140m long and has a width of about 80m. The mooring is well protected, usually right by a plateau with a depth of 5 to 15m. Since the current, except in autumn, actually always comes from the north, it is an ideal day and night mooring place - perfect for exploring the plateau in the dark.
To the south, the plateau is at 5-11m, dropping to 15-18m on the outer sides. At night it is teeming with life. There is almost a guarantee of Spanish dancers, this is what this place is known for. You can also find many kinds of shrimps, rabbits fish, parrot fish in cocoon, flute fish, lion fish, gorgon heads and many more.
In the west you will find some bigger blocks at 22m. Except in the northwestern area there are actually small and big blocks everywhere. You will find among others flatworms, moray eels, small groups of hunting fish as well as slugs.
In the north there is a lagoon with a beautiful coral garden, swarm fish and an anemone colony.
- Spanish dancers: At night we can almost certainly ask the Spanish dancers to enter the dance floor. Of course, this requires some patience and a good sense of intuition.
- Lagoon: The beautiful lagoon with its coral garden and the colony of sea anemones shines in the most beautiful colors during the day.
