Enjoy the currents of the Linta strait
Tatawa Kecil is a small island located in the South of Tatawa Besar, in the North Central part of Komodo National Park. Unlike its sister island, but like many other sites in the park, Tatawa Kecil is known for having strong current, as it is in the middle of the Linta strait, the strait between Komodo Island and Rinca Island. It isn’t the easiest dive site, so it is recommended only for experienced divers, however, the challenge is totally worth it. Due to these currents, Tatawa Kecil is not the best place for snorkeling, however this is not an issue, since in its sister island, Tatawa Besar, conditions are remarkable for snorkeling.

The topography of the site differs greatly from other ones, it is one of the most fascinating and unique in the park. It has almost anything a diver can hope to see, both big and small, an enjoyable dive is guaranteed.
