Div­ing sea­son: April-Novem­ber; best vis­i­bil­ity be­tween Oc­to­ber-Novem­ber

Asian Diver (English) - - Contents -

One of the best things about div­ing in Bali? The out­stand­ing di­ver­sity. Your div­ing hol­i­day can in­clude ev­ery­thing from ex­ten­sive drop-offs and well-pre­served ship­wrecks to mas­sive mola-mola and un­usual crit­ters. That means col­or­ful corals, shoals of fish, and large pelagics com­bined with shore div­ing and muck div­ing.

All in one des­ti­na­tion. When you are out of the wa­ter, the top-side beauty of the ar­chi­tec­ture and Hindu cul­ture is stun­ning as well.

This is­land off the Ta­man Na­sional Bali Barat might as well be the gate to co­ral reef Heaven. Ex­pect su­perb vis­i­bil­ity, healthy rich walls, and abun­dant reef life. One of the top re­gions for Bali div­ing! The top 4 dive sites there, all right next to each other, are:

POS II: top­ping the list is this im­pres­sive co­ral wall that can be done ei­ther as a shore dive or by boat. School­ing bar­racu­das, tur­tles, puffer fish, ea­gle rays, and even reef sharks.

POS I: fun crevices, jaw-drop­ping corals, and caves through­out the reef– com­bined with a 40+ me­ter drop-off and a broad chan­nel lead­ing to the beach.

Gar­den Eel: rich co­ral growth by the chan­nel be­tween Men­jan­gan and the main­land. Filled with gar­den eels and some Napoleon wrasse, tur­tles, and white tip reef sharks.

An­chor Wreck (Ka­pal Bu­dak): no im­pres­sive ship­wreck, but pop­ping with life. Beau­ti­ful co­ral growth; walls, gor­goni­ans sur­rounded by dozens of schools of fish, moray eels, and reef sharks.
