Nusa Penida – Exhilarating Drift Dives
One of the most popular dive locations on Bali is the area around Nusa Penida. An island just off the coast of Bali. There are plenty of dive spots to choose from here. Most of the dives are drift dives which can be quite exhilarating at times. Nusa Penida is the place to be for the famous mola mola (sunfish). The mola mola only comes up to shallower waters when the water is cold enough (usually between July and October). You can also find Manta Point here, manta cleaning station. The number of mantas you will encounter will depend of course, but groups of 7-8 mantas are not uncommon here. Bear in mind though, they’re not always there. Nusa Penida can have some challenging currents, so some of the dive spots are for advanced divers only. Other dive sites, such as Manta Point, are great for beginners too.
North-West Bali – Easy Diving and Impressive Wall Dives
The best known dive location in the North-West of Bali is Menjangan Island. This island in the Menjangan National Marine Park, offers some of the most beautiful scenery underwater.

East Bali – Impressive Variety in Dive Sites

South East of Candidasa you can find some great dive spots. At Gili Biaha for example, you can look at reef sharks in the shark cave. Currents and surge can be strong in this part of the island, so these are dive sites for the advanced diver. Diving around Amed tends to be a bit easier as the current is limited there.

The current is usually mild here and it is therefore a great dive for beginners and advanced divers alike.
In case your goal is to surf and dive, come to Indonesia in April and stay until September. This is the safest period to surf or dive.
