This dive starts from the most North Western tip of Menjangan Island, following the wall southwards towards the Bali/Menjangan channel. Here you will see some of the most healthy and diverse coral on Menjangan, there is also a resident garden of Spotted Eels (hence the name of the site). The cracks and fissures in the wall are filled with a great diversity of reef fish. The top of the wall starts at around 5-8 meters and goes down to a white sandy slope at roughly 25 meters. Just before the slope you will find a huge Gorgonian Sea Fan where occasionally the very timid Long Nosed Hawkfish can be spotted. This area is also known for sightings of White Tip Reef Shark, small schools of Barracudas, Turtles, and Napoleon Wrasse. From the deepest point we start our ascent up the slope, over many soft corals, until reaching a huge colony of Garden Eels which covers the slope from 20m to beyond where it flattens out at 14m.
The Menjangan and Bali’s West Bali National Park are located 4 hours from the South of Bali. While we can arrange day trips under special conditions, we highly suggest you have a look at our special Dive and Stay packages to avoid long days spent in the car.
