Pasir Kerangi at a Glance

Depth: 18 m
Currents: Mild - Strong
Season: March - Sept.

Pasir Kerangi is an artificial reef started by the Fisheries Department in 1991. The PVC pipes are now covered by large colorful soft corals and sponges. The new reef has attracted schools of fusiliers, snappers, damselfish, groupers and butterflyfish. You'll also find some pufferfish, lionfish and moray eels.

The main drawback to Pasir Kerangi is limited visibility. At times it can be as little as 5 to 7 meters.
