Situated in the Bay of Bengal, the Andaman Islands, also known as Emerald Isles because of their green forests, are an isolated group of 325 islands with distinct beauty. Still remaining untouched by mass tourism, the islands are located closer to Thailand than to India and the main settlement called the Port Blair is easily approached from India by plane or ferry.
- ABOUT THE SPOT
Scuba Diving in The Playground, Pemba, Cabo Delgado Mozambique
The Playground is a shallow wall dive and takes its name from the bottlenose dolphins that can be observed on the site and seem to enjoy themselves. It is about 20 minutes away from the marina and it is characterized with overhangs and caves, filled with cray fish, lionfish and firefish on the northern side of Pemba Bay.
Accommodating all levels of divers, the dive depths here range between 12-15 m/40-50 ft. It is also a great macro-site and very popular with photographers, who are after the Mauritian scorpion fish and leaf fish. Other marine life expected here include the blue spotted rays, dusky sweepers and the shrimp.
