- ABOUT THE SPOT
Scuba Diving in Menjangan Island, Bali, Bali Indonesia
Menjangan Island is the first to establish itself as an international premier dive destination in Bali. Located at the northwest of Bali, it is famous for its wild Java deer ( Menjangan means deer in Javanese). It is famous for spectacular wall diving. The walls at Menjangan drop down at 30 m/ 98.4 ft on the south coast and at 60 m/197 ft to the east.
Due to its protected location, waves do not raise any concern and visibility is just mind blowing. Visibility here is amazingly great standing between 20-40 m/66-98 ft. Depths on the other hand range between 5-40 m/16-131 ft. Diving here is open to both the novice and experienced diver and is conducted all year round although August can be somehow choppy.
Characterized by nooks and crannies, overhangs and caverns, there is great opportunity to spot the black spotted moray eels, ribbon eels, hingebeak shrimps and cleaner shrimps.
