Bali, the Island of the Gods, will fulfill your expectations !
Bali is one of the most trending holiday destinations in Indonesia. It offers pristine beaches in the south, coupled with trendy nightlife, that you could easily escape to reach the true Balinese feel and enjoying rich marine life and expansive coral gardens.
Because it must be said, diving in Bali is also beautiful. The island is surrounded by coral reefs. Beaches in the south tend to have white sand while those in the north tend to have black sand.
There is here some sort of synthesis of all the dives of Indonesia with large drop offs, volcanic seabed with black sands, wrecks of the Second World War and magnificent seagrass meadows, muck dives, colorful reefs, large schools of fishes, abundant underwater life manta rays to pygmy seahorses and the most amazing shrimps you can imagine…
Bali diving is particularly suitable for beginner or open water divers. Indeed, the currents are generally much lower than anywhere else in Indonesia. Bali also has some of Indonesia’s best and most accessible diving. You will be able to dive the world famous Liberty Wreck in Tulamben, almost guaranteed to encounter a Mola Mola and manta rays around the island of Nusa Penida, spend good and enjoyable time searching for Rhinopias, mimic octopus and so many frogfishes. In addition, will you be able, unlike in so many other remote locations, to take some time out and immerse yourself in Bali’s unique culture and combine your dive holiday with yoga or breathtaking sightseeing after the dives.
And to conclude, let me say that Bali has some of the most beautiful macro diving sites in the world. The island is therefore particularly suitable for underwater photography.
So, let’s dive in and explore the rich waters of the ‘Island of the Gods.’
The are plenty of good dive shops in Bali that can help you get into exploring the island’s wonderful underwater world. Most of them are staffed by professional dive instructors, generally local guides and divemasters.
