Pulau Mapur, Indonesia

Mapur Island

Mapur island’s northern border bounded by the South China Sea, it is the biggest ‘offshore’ island in the Bintan group. Mapur is well known to the diving fraternity and is known for it’s untouched beaches.The island contains many great dive sites with a submerge pinnacle, lots of hard coral and several wrecks. Diving here is always enjoyable with its reasonable visibilty and wonderful marine life.

There is not any coral damage at all, due to the small amount of divers that visit these sites.  The only coral damage I saw was being done by hungry turtles. The brain coral was scattered everywhere too.
