Diving Bali – Nusa Penida, Tulamben & Menjangan
simply hearing the name conjures up visions of a tropical paradise. It is Indonesia’s most popular tourist destination, and for good reason.
The island of the gods, is a charming destination, not only for its rich natural history but also for its diverse diving destinations. Shipwrecks, drop-offs, sandy slopes, black volcanic seascapes, roaring currents and calm quiet bays… there is something for everyone.
We now offer the chance to discover Bali’s underwater world on board our luxury liveaboard dive boat ADELAAR. Our cruises are designed for five nights or more, depending on your preference. We are starting from our base in Serangan harbor, and sailing up the eastern coastline of Bali, calling at Nusa Lembongan, Nusa Penida, Candi Dasa and Amuk Bay, Amed and Tulamben as well as Menjangan Island.
Nusa Lembongan and Penida:
The Balinese believe these dry rough islands are haunted. But the main attraction is diving in clear water along current swept reefs. Strong currents bring nutrients to the coral which in turn attracts mola mola and big sharks.
Candi Dasa and Amuk Bay:
The islands in this bay are actually little more than current swept rocks, with an untamed beauty. The bay, which is fed by the rich south Bali upwelling, hosts schools of fish as well as sharks and mola mola.
Amed and Tulamben:
Tulamben, home of the famous WWII Liberty shipwreck, is the most known and the best loved diving site in Bali. “Black-sand-bottom” dive sites extend from Amed almost all the way to Bali’s north eastern tip. Some recently discovered…many still waiting to be explored!
The reefs of Northwest Bali are some of the most protected on the island. Clear calm waters, a mysterious old wooden shipwreck, and pristine gorgonian covered walls make Menjangan Island, on Bali’s northwest coast, a premier dive site.
