Reliable conditions, great visibility, diversity of marine life and the Coral Reef Project attract divers and photographers of all abilities to this region of Bali.

Due to the lack of currents, the walls of Menjangan Island feature spectacular gorgonian fans and soft corals from 10-60 metres deep. With plenty of sunlight, it’s possible to explore the creatures in the overhangs and crevices.

Lying just offshore from Pemuteran, 'Karang Lestari' is an award winning artificial reef project stimulating coral growth on man-made metal structures using electricity. These are a haven for fish seeking refuge and there’s plenty of macro life on the rich coral slopes of the nearby dive sites.

The most famous macro site in the northwest is Secret Bay in Gilimanuk. A two kilometre shallow bay, its resident critters pose for photographers both day and night. The dive site is close to the mouth of the main bay and is generally dived on a rising tide offering the best conditions to discover some of the unique marine life found here.
