Insider's View

Blessed with so many beautiful destinations in the world Bali is up there as one of them, it is also Indonesia's most popular and lively dive holiday destination. Many divers find the attraction of good shore-based Bali resort diving set against a stunning back drop of huge, magnificent volcanoes and picturesque rice paddy terraces, simply irresistible.

There are numerous things to do and see here but the overall atmosphere is one of relaxation and well-being. Home to a multitude of religious sites such as Uluwatu Temple and Prambanan Temple it is also well known for its yoga, meditation, and spa retreats. The lively part of the island lies to the south in the beachside city of Kuta whilst Seminyak, Sanur and Nusa Dua are popular resort towns. Although if you’re looking for a quieter placer to stay then you should head to the north or south west coast of the island.

Indeed, the greatest feature of diving in Bali are the plethora of incredibly rich and varied dive sites. Dependent on time of year this is one of the few places in the world to see Sunfish (mola mola), whilst manta rays frequent these waters as do turtles, dolphins, and stonefish to name just a few. Sheer drop-offs, steep banks, coral ridges, bommies, one of the most famous wrecks in the world - USS Liberty, volcanic outcrops and sea grass beds are all part of the underwater tapestry. With its colourful and diverse marine life, there is enough here to keep you coming back for more.

The diving around Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Penida is good all year round and visibility is generally 20-30 metres.

The best time to see mantas is from April until June, although they are present all year round.
