The Poor Nights Islands remained untouched by man for one million years and are now home to tropical marine life, underwater caves and tunnels, and even shipwrecks. The unique ecological state of the islands produced flora and fauna that can’t be seen anywhere else in the world, making it popular with nature enthusiasts. Scuba divers can appreciate the warm, clear water, making it easy to see the huge variety of sea life.
