Scuba Diving and Snorkelling Holidays in Bali

Ideal for: Singles, couples and families

Nestled between Java to the east and Lombok to the west, Bali is a popular holiday destination in its own right although the spectacular and varied diving often gets overlooked for the more traditional beach holiday. Diving in Bali offers something for everyone, amazing pelagic encounters, critter hunting and pristine reef and wall dives made more spectacular by the contrasting black sand and colourful corals. For non-divers, Bali offers great weather, shopping, diving out, nightlife, beaches, yoga, temples, cultural experiences, world class surfing and other watersports, all set to a tropical backdrop of temples, rice paddies and Mount Batur Volcano rising like a giant emerald cone in the centre of the island.

Highlights

  • When diving in Bali is mentioned, the first thought is usually the famous sites of Crystal Bay and Batu Lumbung (Manta Point) at the south east of the island. These sites are a must for some truly thrilling, strong current pelagic spotting with one of the best chances to see the impressive Mola Mola (Ocean Sunfish) (in season) and Manta Rays.
  • Some of the best diving is in the north east of the island around Tulamben and Amed, including the Tulamben Drop-Off and the USAT Liberty, which is arguably the best shore dive/wreck dive in the world. This boast is not unfounded as she is just a stone’s throw from the shore, lying in 10m of water down to a maximum depth of 30m on her starboard side, andtherefore a perfect dive for all experience levels. The wreck is encrusted with a variety of cora,l and is absolutely teeming with reef life including Barry the rather impressive Great Barracuda, Leaf Scorpion fish, Pygmy Seahorses, File Clams, a huge troupe of Bumphead Parrotfish.
  • For budding photographers, muck and macro diving are found just south of the Liberty in Amed and Seraya, with critters in abundance. You can tick off a multitude of Nudis, Harlequin and Coleman’s Shrimps, Lion fish, Scorpion fish, Frog fish and much more. Lesser known sites around the Secret Bay and Menjangan areas in north west Bali and Padangbai in the east offer critter diving that is only matched by Lembeh, Komodo, Ambon and Mabul.
