Our top 3 favourite dive sites in Bali

We head out every day to various diving spots around Bali to do what we love most. Every site is unique, and brings its own incredible sightings. While we love all of them, we made a short list of our favourite dive sites around the island.

  1. Crystal Bay – Nusa Penida

Especially from July to October this is our absolute number one dive site in Bali. During these months, we head out to Nusa Penida almost every day. These 4 months it is Mola Mola Season. This amazing creature attracts divers from all over the world, and is often spotted around Nusa Penida and Nusa Lembongan. This dive site is only for experienced divers though, as the currents can be quite strong. What’s great, is that you don’t have to travel by car, only a short trip to the harbour of Sanur. From here, you will take the boat and within forty five minutes you’re at the dive site. We also conduct our Advanced Open Water Courses here.

  1. USAT Liberty Shipwreck – Tulamben

Only 40 meters off shore you will find the 120-meter-long WWII shipwreck. The water is normally very calm, and the visibility is great! The dive site is perfect for beginners, but very much enjoyable for the experienced divers as well. The shipwreck itself is unlike any other shipwreck. Because it doesn’t lay in deep waters, you can see all the colours of the coral that is attached to and surrounding the wreck. The ship is so enormous, that you don’t know where to look once you come closer to the wreck.  Hundreds of different species live around the ship, and there is an eel garden right beside it!

 

  1. Manta Point – Nusa Penida

Not only for divers, but also for snorkelers this dive site is absolutely amazing! We can almost guarantee you that you will see at least one Manta Ray, either while snorkelling or diving. When they are there, they can’t be missed. Some of the Manta’s have wingspans of more than three meters! They are harmless, too, and curious about divers. They might even come close to you! Sometimes they come with a whole group of 10 to 15 Manta Rays, which is such an incredible thing to witness.

What is your favourite dive site? And what do you love about it?
