Scuba Diving in Menjangan

Menjangan Island is a part of the West Bali National Park conservation area and offers unspoilt white sand beaches along with some seriously stunning wall dives.
When scuba diving Menjangan, we can enjoy gorgeous hard and soft coral, abundant gorgonian fans and fascinating caves and swim-throughs provide homes and shelter to a huge variety of marine life. On land, there’s also the chance to spot the cute deer for which Menjangan Island was named. Clear, warm water with kind currents, suitable for beginner divers.

Highlights

POS 2 is one of Menjangan’s most iconic wall dives. Drift slowly with the current, passing an abundance of soft corals, sponges and sea fans to a vast field of gorgonian fans.  This is an excellent opportunity to test your eyes and see if you can spot a pygmy seahorse.  We often meet turtles, reef sharks, eagle rays, and bigger stuff passing in the blue.

Things to see

It’s easy to see the positive effect the marine park status has had on the underwater environment here.

You’ll be spoilt with sightings of black and white tip reef sharks, pygmy seahorses, frogfish, turtles, oriental sweetlips, fusiliers, Napoleon wrasse, eels, marble and blue spotted rays, and loads of schooling reef fish. Not to mention abundant and healthy hard and soft corals.

Other Dive Sites

Eel Garden

Eel Garden is another must-do site, with blue sponges that shelter giant frogfish and a lovely wall. Magnificent gorgonians decorate the wall and hide pygmy seahorses for those with excellent eyes and photography skills.  At the end of the wall, we come to a sandy slope carpeted by masked garden eels and a beautiful shallow coral garden with leaf scorpion fish, nudibranchs, octopus, and more.

Anchor Wreck

Anchor Wreck, where ironically, the main attraction is the marine life since the wreck itself lies at around 45m. It’s still disputed whether this is a 19th century Dutch ship that sank during WW2 or a much older ship that sank with a cargo of Balinese slaves during Dutch colonisation.  Either way, be prepared for reef sharks in the blue and on the reef, nudibranchs, turtles and giant sponges and sea whips providing cover for various reef fish.

Sandy Slope

Sandy Slope is a superb starting place for beginners with clear water. The slope drops off to stunning reef with schools of jacks, tuna, mackerel and barracuda in the blue.

Bat Cave & Temple Wall

Bat Cave & Temple Wall can often be combined with a single drift dive. Rich sea life encrusts the sheer walls, and there’s a good chance of seeing bigger stuff passing in the blue.
