When to go diving

From Novemeber to March

The islet of Black Rock is a small rock in the middle of Myanmar’s ocean. It provides a steep wall drop to over 100 metres, characterised by rugged boulder formations and fine soft coral. A shallow section of tube corals is home to a bevy of miniature sea creatures, where sea urchins bask and busy crabs and shrimps clatter about their business. Many consider Black Rock to be the finest dive spot in Burma. Its crystal clear waters offer 35-metre visibility, providing breath-taking views past the rock walls to the on-going procession of barracuda, tuna, mackerel, rays, reef sharks, whale sharks and eagle rays.
We only go to Black Rock during our trip 4, a very popular Myanmar cruise.
