  • I enjoyed it more than I expected! First, i encountered a herd of dolphins twice near the atoll. It seems that there are a lot of dolphins in this vicinity if it hears it. In the morning, we enjoyed snorkeling on the beach. Because there were not so many corals in the sandy beach, i did not expect so much, but there were a few sharks (a quiet kind that did not attack the person) (it was not known because it did not know the details), and it was able to swim together. Also, a few ai (name lost) in the sand, and we were able to swim together. These sharks and rays can be seen in this neighborhood at any time. Also, some young fish of the nanyo swallow which seemed to be only dead leaves were also swimming. It is said that it is unusual here, and it seems not to be able to see it all the time. The promise of the standard Nemo system after that. In the afternoon, snorkeling while drifting in the flow. You can move naturally without swimming. Lol. It is the feeling which looks at the point of diving from the top. I was able to see the cabbage coral beautifully, and i saw the herd of barracuda. Above all, the coral was lively and beautiful. Anyway, it was the best.

  • When I visited Pompeii, I definitely wanted to go to Anz Atoll, so I was able to enjoy it quite a bit. It takes more than 90 minutes by boat from land, and it goes out to the open sea, so it may take more time depending on the sea conditions. I really wanted to dive, but i'm sorry that when it comes to diving alone, i was turned down by any shop. However, beautiful coral and dark fish shadow were able to enjoy snorkeling enough. There is nothing on the island. It is a beach in the shallow ness with the remnants of a decayed ship. It seems to be able to stay (camping) once, but it does not enter there like the next island. I think there aren't many in the world who can enjoy the beach as beautiful as this. Forget the time, you can walk slowly on the island, swim in the sea, and forget the hustle and bustle. It's a place that teaches us that the world is wide.
