Just of the shore of Salang Bay lies the small and uninhabited island Soyak (also called Soyah). It’s so close to Salang Bay, one could easily snorkel to it from the beach and enjoy its clear fish filled waters.

The reef formation consists of large granite boulders, which are covered with Soft Corals, Fire Corals, Sea Whips, Turret (Cup) Corals, Anemones and a large variety of Hard Corals.

With a maximum depth of 16 meters and an average depth of 10 meters, Soyak is one of the preferred sites for the second or third dive of the day. The close proximity and the diverse colors and marine life make it also one of the prime boat night dive sites.

The resident marine life you can find here include Hawksbill Turtles, Blue Ring Angelfish, Pufferfish, Batfish, Emperors, Napoleon Wrasses, Titan Triggerfish, Parrot Fish, Bumphead Parrot Fish, Butterfly Fish, Blue Spotted Stingrays, Yellow Striped Snappers, Moray Eels, Yellowtail Fusiliers, Yellowtail Barracudas, Zebra Lionfish and lots of Nudibranchs.
