Coral Castles is a boat accessible salt water dive site, located in Mbulo Island, Solomon Islands.

The north side of Mbulo Island is generally pretty well protected from any storm surge. It is home to the most prolific variety of hard corals that I have seen anywhere- and I only wish I knew all their names. Wandering in and out of canyons, the corals grow in fascinating formations, reminding one of visions of fairylands and castles. It pays to keep a sharp eye out, for cuttlefish roam the area seeking food, and if we’re lucky, a mate. It was here I watched entranced as 2 males duked it out over a female, hovering coyly over in a protected corner. A stunning array of butterflies, angels and wrasses can keep one endlessly occupied.
