Hundreds of coral reefs can easily be seen from the beach and it is highly recommended to dive or snorkel at Ora beach. Colorful fishes will welcome you. You just need to dive 2-3 metres and that is enough to already see everything.

There is more to do here though. You can watch how local people make sagu and take coconuts from the trees. You can just lie down and watch the birds flying over Sulaiman bay, and when you are done you can do something completely different: trekking through the jungle in Negeri Sawai.

In the jungle is a a bit of a hidden place you maybe can find. It is a training and rehabilitation centre for animals, in Masihulan village. At this conservation centre you can see cockatoos and seram parrot. In the jungle are also several caves and waterfalls to find...
