The stunning white sand and multicoloured coral reefs of the Goto Islands provide the perfect place to explore some of the best marine environments Nagasaki has to offer. The complex makeup of the islets ensures a variety of diving spots, no matter which island you depart from.
Thanks to currents that flow toward Tsushima island in the north, an array of sea animals come and go freely. Local diving companies provide diving packages that cater for beginner to intermediate divers, but, if you’re not keen on taking the plunge, snorkelling and fish-feeding activities are also available. Advanced divers can explore the mystic depths of a 100m shipwreck, the most popular dive in Goto.
The sea surrounding the Goto Islands is home to octopodes, lionfish, anemone and much more.
