ABOUT DIVING IN BALI

Bali is located in the Lesser Sundas, midway along Indonesia’s southernmost chain of island between Java and Lombok. The island’s south coast just touches the easternmost edge of the Indian Ocean., while the north coast looks onto the Java Sea. To the southeast lie the islands of Nusa Penida and Ceningan, and at Bali’s far northwestern tip lies Pulau Menjangan, part of Bali Barat National Park, which is a protected Nature Reserve.

Diving in Bali has been well-recognized as one of the world’s top dive destinations, with its coastal waters having a wealth of superb dive sites hidden within. Diving in Bali is spectacular, with many of the dives only metres from the beach and all enhanced by the pleasures of diving in a tropical climate. There is a dazzling variety of both hard and soft corals. In fact, the number of different types of corals that are concentrated in Bali’s dive sites rivals the full range that a diver could find in other Asian countries.

FEATURED DIVE SITE

USS LIBERTY WRECK, TULAMBEN

FROM $325 / PAX

The wreck, of the World War II Liberty ship, is one of the most popular dive sites in Bali. She is approximately 100 meters long, and is situated near the shore, making the dive site very accessible. The hull is pretty beaten, with the stern towards the beach and the bow pointing towards the depths; the wreck is not intact enough to speak of penetrating it, but parts of the hold are whole, and there are numerous overhanging sections and swim-throughs. The metal hull is completely encrusted by corals, making the fish population here really worth the while.

Other than reef fishes such as groupers, parrotfish, several types of triggerfish, Moorish Idols, Angelfish, many Blue-spotted Stingrays and uncountable surgeonfish and unicornfish, critters such as shrimps, nudibranchs, and the likes are aplenty, making underwater photography opportunities abound, especially macro-photography.
