A pleasant 25 minute ojek ride from Kota Saparua through some delightful scenery and villages to the north-east village of Itawaka with a beautiful tree lined street waiting and a short walk to a tiny beach from which snorkelling is possible. To get to the drop off, booties are recommended especially if visibility is not at its best. But if the water is not too choppy, there is a great drop off with some decent coral and a range of fish. Locals suggest morning is the best time. There is a great view of Pulau Seram. And after snorkelling, a little wander along the street where locals set up little stalls outside their homes to sell fresh vegetables.

Address: Itawaka, North-east Pulau Saparua
