The remote northwestern corner of Bali Island is the location of several popular destinations for adventure seekers and outdoor travelers.
This section contains information about the dive sites at Pemuteran Bay and Menjangan Island - two of the leading locations for scuba and snorkeling trips in the area.
There's an ongoing effort to preserve many of the rare marine animals that exist in Bali's north western quadrant.
The habitat is a special region surrounded by the deep blue ocean and mountain ranges.
In other words, Pemuteran and Menjangan dive sites are some of the most sought after in all 32 Balinese islands.
We found more than twenty (20) diving destinations that are ideal for almost all diver certification levels.
The preservation efforts, along with the clarity of the water, combine to create a healthy environment of biodiversity and intense colours for scuba divers and snorkelers to enjoy.
Some of the best diving locations are better suited for divers with some previous experience, especially the deeper spots.
Even so, you will find spectacular wall dives, offshore coral reefs, and shallow snorkeling sites around the Biorock® project from Pemuteran beach and shoreline. Some of the scarce sea life creatures and plants you might expect to see includes:
For the most part, you'll need to join one of the organised boat trips to reach the outer locations (especially those at Menjangan Marine Park).
This small island flanks the northwestern coastline of Bali inside the Bali Barat National Park. It also has the status awarded for all protected marine reserves.
Pro Tip: Some of the dive sites at Menjangan Island are not suitable for learner divers. In fact, the region has an infamously high number of scuba diving injuries reported to DAN (especially decompression sickness).
