The Old Hotel, Pomene

At the end of the peninsular is the ruin of a hotel.

It was built in 1968 and closed after only six years, with the start of the horrendous civil war which claimed the lives of over a million people, including many in this area.

We love walking around the ruins. The light was dramatic – end of the day and a storm brooding. That photo of the rainbow was fortuitous as it includes the exact spot we ended up diving (we didn’t know at the time).

The map on the left is from a poster for the ruined old Hotel. Photo on right taken from a Reef book, they’re arrow-dart gobies (if you wanted to know) that we saw on the second dive.
