Located on the northern part of Lintea Island, this dive site—which translates as Maya Bay— has been known for its variety of marine life, even cited as one of the most diverse spots at Wakatobi Resort. With a gentle slope down to 12 meters, the coral formations welcome you to explore deeper. Spadefish, parrotfish, pipefish, wrasse, frogfish, anemonefish, angelfish, and butterflyfish are abundant here, and cuttlefish are said to make Teluk Maya their mating and nesting space.
For macro lovers, the sandy bay is a favorite spot for the Lembeh sea dragon, a relatively new species of pygmy seahorse discovered in 2006 in Lembeh Straits. Nudibranchs like solar- powered phyllodesmium, Chromodoris elisabethina, and Halgerda batangas are commonly found here in Maya Bay.
