Lembeh Strait

 

North Sulawesi,

Indonesia.

The Lembeh Straight is narrow stretch of water between Lembeh Island and the mainland tip of north eastern Sulawesi, renown as the muck diving capital of the world.  It is incomparable for critters, and one of my favourite places to dive on the planet.
