MENJANGAN ISLAND - The reserve :
You can dive all around the island. Beautiful drops off with lots of hanging fauna : sea fans, sponges and corals.
It's a opportunity to see the pygmy seahorse ; Juvenile batfish and lobster entrenched in the crevices of falling, crocodile fish, varieties of anemonefish,  electric clam, etc...

Good visibility, hot water all year (between 28 and 30 degrees) and beautiful view of the Java volcanoes..
The non-divers can snorkeling in Menjangan also

2016: The entrance to the reserve is at your expense: 200,000 rph (about 14 euros per person per day)

PEMUTERAN
Several sites on Pemuteran. Even wildlife on Menjangan, but not drop.

MUCK DIVE :
  • Puri Jati : Starting from the beach. Diving on black sand. Many tiny animals... Hippocampes, mimic octopus, ghost pipefish (delicate,robust or harlequin). A lot of different crabs and shrimps ... Must be done at least once... Addict macro photographers will be really interested !
  • Secret Bay : Starting from the beach. A little more muddy but always full of life. Seahorses, nudibranchs, cardinal fishes, bobbit worm, etc ... Water may be fresh and diving is more fun at high tide under the jetty.
To Menjangan island about 20-25 minutes by boat. Overthere, slightly to the right side in the background

AMED AND TULAMBEN

AMED :
Beautiful drop-off, coral gardens visited by turtles, the fauna and flora are present.  Start from the beach or using a traditional  boat called jukung, wonderment is waiting for you...

In area of 10 meters deep along the coast a real nursery awaits you.
Amateur or professional photographers : don't forget your camera !
  • Pyramides : An entire eco- system was revived at 15-25 meters deep around pyramids . Probable meeting with toad fish, Pygmies sea horses, cleaner shrimps,...

  • Japenese wreck : Starting pebble beach, 5 meters deep a small wreck and continue diving on a sandy slope and coral garden where nudibranchs, among others, have made their home...

TULAMBEN :
  • LIBERTY Wreck : US Cargot sunk in January 1942 by the Japanese fleet (from -6m to -28m). Starting range. This wreck, known worldwide, is home for many  fishes and is covered by varieties of corals, sponges and sea fans. Cowries and nudibranchs like them. It is not unusual to see humpback parrot, turtle walking inside. A solitary barracuda always on the lookout...To my opinion, diving must day and night.
  • Drop off : Starting  from a pebble beach. After immersion, the wall is on the right side about 50 meters : wildlife share the premises.
  • Coral garden : Starting from a pebble beach. Open your eyes : tiny nudibranchs, flat worms,  anemone and coral commensal shrimp, mantis shrimp, ghost pipefish, etc...

5 min by boat from IKANDIVE

NUSA PENIDA
(island in the south, about 35 or 45 mn by speed boat)
  • Manta point and Manta Bay :  2 manta's sites on Nusa Penida. Manta rays in Bali are there all year. But, to reiterate, we do not see them systematically. Most often we see the manta rays on the cleaning station to 6-10m, sometimes you have to look for 20-25m.
  • Crystal bay :  A bay in the channel between Nusa Penida and Nusa Cuningan. Good visibility, beautiful corals. A beautiful dive but the currents might be potentially very strong. You have to be really wary during the dive. It is also the best  known site for mola mola.
  • Sental, PED, SD :  Dives on the north coast of Nusa Penida. Beautiful corals, mola mola sometimes. These sites are drift dive sites, ranging from nice drifting to the TGV version...  The coast of Nusa Penida is specialized in seaweed farming.
  • Toyo Pakeh : Dive site at the channel entrance, nice dive but here again very strong currents with potential flush, etc... very nice when it is practicable.

GILI
(in front of Candidasa not Lombok)
  • Gili Mimpang : 3 big rocks in front of Candidasa. Dive site with strong potential current downdrafts and possible flush. The strengths of diving are sharks that are almost always there (white tip, black tip sometimes) and also mola mola in season. Beautiful corals at the rear of the site, sometimes turtles.
  • Gili Tepekong : Big rock always in front of Candidasa. Around this rock, many dive sites with strong potential current downdrafts and possible flush also. Here beautiful corals, lots of soft corals also sometimes pygmy seahorses, turtles, baby sharks in cave, mola mola also possible. Beautiful dives. These two sites are about 15 minutes by speed boat or 25 minutes by traditional boat.
  • Gili Biaha : Impassable during the windy season, from July to September.
