Actually three sister islands - Nusa Penida, Nusa Lembongan, Nusa Ceningan. Dry limestone islands about 20 km off the South East coast of Bali, reached by fast speedboat in a 35 minutes journey from Nusa Dua. The healthiest corals in Bali, and home to a huge variety of reef fish. Great for drift diving, and Dramatic above-water scenery. Lots of Manta and lots of Mola mola (Sunfish). Temperature around 28°C, but the strong currents and sharp thermoclines can occasionally bring it down to the low 20°. Good visibility. Enjoy the hot drink or coffee we serve on the boat. So bring your medication if you are prone to Sea-sickness.
NUSA PENIDA NORTH COAST
There four site along Nusa Penida north coast. All feature similar terrain, swirling currents, beautiful reef and plenty of fish life. The prevailing currend hit the northern coast of penida and split east and west, so diver can expect long drift dive. Rich & healthy stands of coral which are home to an amazing variety of reef fish. Good coral diversity, including long spiraling Wire Corals, Tables and Domes. A great place to see Mola mola in season, and the best drift diving in Bali. This entire North Coast is one long stretch of healthy reef with at least five distinct dive sites.
The best coral in Bali and clear waters. Towering bommies, and a rich slope. Pufferfish and Giant Trevally. Anything & everything has at sometime been seen here; Mola mola, Shark, Manta and other Rays, and lots of big ocean fishes. Sometimes fierce & unpredictable currents, sometimes still and gentle.
CRYSTAL BAY (HOME OF MOLA-MOLA)
Inside the bay is sheltered from the currents, with a wonderful array of soft corals. Move outside the bay and feel the current pick up, sometimes trying to pull you down the sand & coral slope. Stick with our experienced guides and stick close to the reef. These currents bring with them good chances of encounters with the larger schooling ocean fishes and Mola mola in season. Usually great visibility here and often very cold. In the corner of the bay there is a small bat cave you can surface in and take a breath.
Inside Gamat Bay is truly beautiful; below the crystal clear waters lies a colourful carpet of both hard & soft corals, home to a variety of Nudibranchs and other macro delights as well as some big Groupers. Leaving the gentle waters of the bay let the current take you as you drift along the wall of the channel between Nusa Penida & Nusa Cenigan. The currents can be very swift. Keep good group contact, stick close to the wall. Keep one eye to the channel for Sharks and big fish.
MANGROVE (SAKENAN BAY)
Lined with Mangrove trees, this is a good long site for drifting in the current. The nearly flat profile - in contrast to the steep slopes at most of the other sites around Nusa Penida - gives a wide-angle viewpoint. Lobsters are among the most commonly seen marine life here, and various Triggerfishes and Surgeons. Be careful the gentle slope doesn't fool you into drifting towards the open ocean; stick with your guide.
Other dive side Around Lembongan and Nusa Penida include: SD, Pure Ped, Buyuk, Malibu Point, Ceningan Wall, Blue Corner, Manta Point, and Batu Abah.
