Diving and snorkelling at Yenanas Paradise Homestay

Located on a fantastic sheltered beach that’s perfect for children, Yenanas Paradise Homestay affords safe swimming over a sandy bottom close inshore, transitioning to a coral reef that offers great snorkelling as you get further out. (Bring your own snorkelling gear.)

Diving is available at Yenanas by arrangement with neighbouring operators.

Providing sunrise ocean views, the Yenanas Paradise beach also has a strong freshwater spring which bubbles up on the seabed and is accessible at low tide. Turtles and small sharks are often seen in the shallows by day and walking sharks can be seen at night.

Apart from birds of paradise, cuscus, tikus besar and a host of other birds and smaller animals, the nearby jungle also conceals a grove of bamboo containers used long ago in magic rituals conducted for individuals by Yenbeser’s village doctor.

Jungle trails lead from Yenanas Paradise to a tree where Red Birds of Paradise come to display. The display tree is about an hour’s walk from Yenanas and a deviation to take in a panoramic viewpoint can be made.
