Baluba Reef is situated straight out from Dive Bazaruto's launch site, past the line of surf between Margaruque Island and San Sebastian point. It is a large, relatively level, flat topped reef with some lovely caves and gullies.

Whilst gliding above the reef, shoals of redfang triggerfish entertain divers by hiding their heads in cracks – leaving their entire bodies exposed. Clown triggerfish are plentiful and look as though an artist has been painting their bodies. Numerous brightly colored reef fish give the reef a busy appearance and looking down there are sandy pits, much like sink holes. Here there are honey comb morays curled into crevices looking to prey on unsuspecting octopus, which are abundant on this reef. Dropping into the gullies, divers follow winding paths through coral gardens where caves demand to be explored and swimthroughs are irresistible. For nudibranchs lovers, this is the ultimate dive, with an amazing variety of these small, dainty reef dwellers. Baluba is perfect for Open Water Divers and is an awesome site for underwater photography.
