The ‘jewel’ of Penida. Toyapakeh, which means ‘salt water’ in
Balinese, is the richest site in Penida. It offers a steep wall to the
south, terraces with huge hard coral formations in the bay and a
shelving reef in the north. The density of coral, sponge and fish life is
incredible and on a good day it has all this plus the large pelagics
(hammerhead sharks, mantas and sunfish have been spotted here).
Manta Point - Nusa Penida
The site that has made Penida famous. Very regular sightings of adult
Manta Rays, Turtles and Nurse Sharks make this site on the exposed
south side of the island stunning, but the sea conditions have to be
favourable, so it is definitely a dive to be savoured.
Blue Corner AKA Jurassic Point -Nusa Lembongan
Dropping away to 50 metres, a series of overhanging terraces hide
White Tips and large Black Marbled Rays and, as you approach the
corner, schools of Snapper and Jacks regularly pass by. This is also
where, if you're lucky, you may spot the bizarre Mola Mola (Sunfish).
Sekolah Dasar - This is located on the north coast of Nusa Penida.
Sekolah Dasar means 'primary school', but when the currents are
running, this site is not for the novice. Less steep than Blue Corner, but
with larger coral heads, the currents here wind you past Green and
Hawksbill Turtles, Marble Rays, Sea Snakes, Octopus, White Tip Reef
Sharks and the most diverse collections of corals and sponges in Bali.
Also known as Crystal Bay, this is located at the south end of the
channel between Nusa Penida and Nusa Ceningan.
This bay deserves its nickname of Crystal Bay as the visibility here is
often 30m+. The rock in the middle of the bay has very steep drop offs
to the south and west and an amazing shelf in the north that is
carpeted with wrinkled soft corals in the shallows. World Diving guides
have found this site to be just as reliable for spotting Mola Mola in
August and September as Blue Corner.
Located on the east side of Nusa Ceningan.
The nutrient rich waters flowing out of the mangroves feed dense
collections of multi-coloured soft corals and sponges on the north tip of
Ceningan. Sweeping out into the current along the wall inquisitive
Eagle Rays occasionally join the dive groups for the tour which winds
through schools of Oriental Sweetlips and Sleek Unicornfish.
|Nusa Lembongan generally has surf all year round but it
is more consistent during the April to October period (dry
During this time you will find that the south east trade
winds are offshore on Lembongan, the same as the
Uluwatu or Kuta side of Bali.
