Diving in Bali is one of the best in Asia-Pacific with famous diving spots such as Tulamben and Nusa Penida and famous dives such as the USAT Liberty wreck, Manta Point and Crystal Bay. The island of the Gods is a great destination for scuba divers who love wreck diving and mola-molas. A little less known, you can also give a try at diving in Nusa Lembongan and Menjangan Island.
The marine life in Bali is mostly about mola molas, manta rays, bumphead parrotfish, clownfish and nudibranchs. It’s the right place to go for experienced divers mainly. Due to the water temperatures, regarding scuba gear, it is most common to scuba dive there in a 5 mm wetsuit. The best season is often from May to October. The best dive sites can be reached by boat or from the shore.
