Hotel California

A great snorkelling trip

What we say: 4.5 stars

Set an hour from Kadidiri, Hotel California is an atoll due north of Wakai that's home to nothing but three fishing shacks, a single stone outcrop with a lone palm tree and some quite solid snorkelling.

This is one of the few sites that is more popular with snorkellers than divers (due to the fairly shallow depth), and while some of the coral is very banged up, other parts are alive and well and there are a few beautiful fans you can dive down to see.

A few spots here are worth checking out, with reef two supposedly the best (we only had time to try reef one before pushing on). If time allows, ask your boat pilot to take you to at least a couple of different spots around the atoll.
