SCUBA diving – Menjangan, Secret Bay, Purijati, Tulamben
Menjangan is unmissable for anyone visiting Bali, snorkellers and scuba divers alike. The gentle conditions and varied underwater world offer many different sites, soft Aquarium diving, drift diving around coral canyons, to a 40m sheer wall with huge fans and teeming with life.
The traditional Banyuwedang Harbour lies only 150m away where a charming 40-minute boat ride will take you along the coast to the reefs of Menjangan Island – you may see Dolphins or even Whales for some of the worlds best diving/snorkelling experiences.
Menjangan is great for beginner- or experienced divers; with the about 20 dive sites, there’s plenty for everyone!
With all sorts of macro- and small critters to offer, from frogfish, nudis of course, scorpionfish, sea snakes, octopus, and squid…etc, etc.
Also, great spots for more experienced divers, are Secret Bay, or Puri Jati. Both are muck-dives, with delights like Ghost Pipefish, Seahorses (big and pigmy), Bangai Cardinalfish, frogfish, mimic octopus – etc. These are 30-40 mins away, but Prices include transport and equipment.
Just in the bay’s mouth (10 minutes from our harbor) is Mandarin Point – sunset dives with Pyjama cardinalfish, and romantic mandarin fish!
