Dive Sites of Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Penida
New dive sites are still being discovered around Nusa Lembongan, Nusa Ceningan and Nusa Penida, but some of the dive sites we visit regularly are listed below:
Diving Nusa Lembongan
This is an exciting dive for experienced divers only. The huge expanse of current swept slopes at Blue Corner provides some dramatic topography. Here you are not inspecting the coral but watching instead for bigger fish out in the blue and the site doesn’t often disappoint. A great site for mola mola (ocean sunfish) during the season and other visitors include eagle rays, huge marble rays, wobbegong, tuna and even the occasional shark.
This site is so called due to its location, right by the mangrove area to the north east of Nusa Lembongan. Mangroves offers a healthy sloping coral reef, with small bommies and table corals waiting to be explored for the small stuff and often marble rays and other larger species swimming past in deeper water. Sharks are occasionally seen here too. A good site for all levels.
Lembongan Bay offers the perfect introduction to diving. Due to its maximum depth of 10m and calmer conditions, it is an ideal site for beginner divers, those wanting a refresher or for avid photographers. The sandy bottom is dotted with coral bommies which are home to frog fish, moral eels, schools of silversides, unicornfish and many more of the smaller species.
Diving Nusa Penida and Nusa Ceningan
The “Crystal” in Crystal Bay refers to the fantastic visibility normally experienced here, which can reach 40m+ on good day. Crystal Bay is certainly one of the area’s most popular dive sites and is a favourite of the visiting mola mola (ocean sunfish) from August to October. The bay floor is covered with golden sand and is surrounded by sloping coral reef to either side. A healthy reef, an interesting cave, huge table coral and hundreds of fish of all shapes and sizes – there is not much that this dive site cannot offer.
This site was discovered by Tim at Big Fish Diving in 2010. Like Manta Point, we cannot get to this site every day, but it is closer and more protected than Manta Point, so is fast becoming a very popular dive. Manta Cove is a shallow bay with a stunning backdrop and is rich in plankton, which attracts manta rays year round. The dive has a maximum depth of 12m and the coral bottom, with its gullies and swim-throughs, is an interesting distraction from the manta action going on above.
