Where: A small village in a peaceful bay, on the North East coast of Bali. Two hours by road, then a few minutes by small local boat. About 20 minutes by road from Tulamben.
Highlights: Usually warm and full of colour and life. Great reefs and macro diving too.
Conditions: Generally good and calm, with warm waters. Good visibility is the norm, except after heavy rains in the rainy season (Jan - March).
A rich coral slope, masses of reef fish, and an unmissable colony of giant Garden eels. The best corals at 25- 30m, so ideally dived on Nitrox. Generally calm conditions and warm waters.
A dramatic wall dive where turtle are often spotted, as well as maori wrasse and cuttlefish. The end of the dive takes you to some great macro diving and often a shoal of batfish that have made the underwater temple thier playground
Masses of garden eels as you start your dive. The pyramids have been sunk as artificial reefs and the critters love them, pygmy seahourses, nudibranch, frogfish, leaf scorpionfish and crown snake eels are just a few of the residents. There is a pretty fringing reef as well where you can often spot a turtle on your safety stop.
THE JAPENESE WRECK
If you are staying a couple of days in the area then dive the small Japanese steel freighter wreck which lies in very shallow water (6-12m) in a quiet little black sand bay called Banyuning. The wreck encrusted with gorgonians, sponges and black coral bushes. The slope down away from the wreck has soft corals, gorgonians and sponges with a wide array of marine life.
