Lembeh Strait in Indonesia is without exaggeration one of the world’s largest epicenter of “weirdness” and a paradise for underwater photographers. If you’ve so far dove only around colorful coral reefs, Lembeh offers a completely different experience. A monotonous sandbed with lots of rubbish may discourage you at first glance, but the reward is diving with the most bizarre little “monsters” on the planet. A lot of camouflaged fish imitate mushrooms, stone or grass, and instead of swimming, they walk the sandbed. Welcome to the amazing world of “muck diving”! You can find more about diving at Lembeh in my recently published acticle in Taucher Revue 185/2021 (in German).
