Pom Pom Island is truly an amazing place for diving and definitely one of its kind.
Putting the diving a side, the place is a real haven if you want to get away from the city buzz and just relax for a bit. By not having too many (or too few) bungalows to choose from, it’s ideal if you’re up for meeting some new faces or just spending time with yourself (or whoever you’re with) without being disturbed by large tourist groups or intrusive waiters. The long sandy beach, the clear water and the picturesque jetty that stands in the water like a lone martyr makes the sight nothing but spectacular but the friendly and welcoming staff makes things even better.
The rooms are spacious and have what you need - one desk, one bed, one shower, one sink, one toilet and one wardrobe. Although the water pressure in the shower might not be the strongest you can regulate the heat and have real hot showers if you want to. The bed is rather short so tall people might wanna curl up a bit so their feet’s doesn't hang over the edge but the otherwise comfy bed makes up for that. In case of tech. cravings, the only teve is placed in the outdoor common area as well as the access for wifi. For us everything worked great and in case we had any questions Guido and Nurul made sure all are requests were met.
I took my Open Water certificates through their course and it was both fun and felt extremely safe. It’s all about feeling comfortable and enjoying the amazing world below the surface. You can take it in your pace and the dive masters are all very patient and knowledgeable. As safety and being relax was something I was looking for I was very pleased with the whole course and can warmly recommend all the divemasters I dove with - Cynthia, Peter, Heather & Jerome.
We usually never travel to a place we already visited but within a year we already been here twice and can’t wait to come back again. That says about everything I think...
Thanks again Guido, Nurul, Peter, Heather, Jerome and staff!!!
