Diving Kimbe Bay

Underwater, Kimbe Bay supports an incredibly diverse marine habitat. World famous dives sites like Ema, South Bay, Inglis Shoal, North Ema, Christine’s, Susan’s, and Restorff Island are only a few of the more than 200 reefs and dive sites sprinkled throughout Kimbe Bay. All are pristine and protected by a rigid policy of “Look but don’t touch.”

70% of all coral species in the Indo-Pacific region are found in Walindi’s waters. No other dive area in the world can boast such diversity. Walindi management policy is committed to supporting this unique ecology both below and above the water. To this end, the resort is supporting the establishment by the European Union of a Nature and Marine Research Centre within the resort grounds, which will continue to monitor and research all aspects of Kimbe Bay and West New Britain ecosystems.
