Indonesia :: Bali : Lembongan

The island of Lembongan lies to the north of Bali's most popular dive spots on Nusa Penida. With speeding currents, clear visibility and big pelagic visitors the dive sites around Lembongan can be thrilling.

Blue Corner
This can be an extremely exciting dive but heed must be taken to the advice you given by the Divemaster. When you descend to about 18 - 20 meters the current grabs you and you begin the natural rollercoaster ride of a lifetime. The current takes you round to the point (corner) where there is a vertical wall to a depth of around 28 meters. Blue Corner is usually full of fish as well as sharks, big Napoleon wrasse, eagle rays and plenty of other marine life. Its also one of the better spots to see the Mola Mola sunfish when currents are kind at the right time of year.

Mangrove
Named after the mangrove trees that line the shore this dive site has a gentler, profile. Again good marine life and can be done as a drift. Another gentle and shallower dive for those that are not speed freaks can be done at Lembongan Bay around the island. It is a good spot for beginners and snorkellers.

Ceningan Wall
Very strong currents here and it is only diveable in certain conditions. Coral growth is stunted due to the speed of the passing water. Big schools of tuna, trevally and barracuda come here to feed in the big currents. This is a high adrenaline dive that is only recommended for experienced divers.
