Lombok is only half-hour flight or 1-2hours by fast-boat from Bali and it offers three very different dive destinations:
We are very pleased to announce that we have entered into a partnership with DiveZone, a dive operation that has been in Lombok for more than 10 years, which means that Two Fish guests can also add diving Lombok to their Indonesian dive trips.
Gili Air is placed on one of the most beautiful islands of the country, just 5 kilometers from Lombok. It is the second smallest of the Gili islands, as well as being the ideal starting point if you wish to scuba dive Gilis.
Our dive center is located on Gili Air, a tropical-island dive resort right on the beach, away from the crowds of Gili Trawangan but close to its dive sites. We are based at the Villa Karang Hotel, right on the best beach front overlooking the mainland of Lombok. It has its own restaurant and all the other island facilities are within walking distance.
The crystal clear, warm water offer a huge variety of sea life with something for everybody from plenty of macro life to the big schools and pelagics. It has a reputation for being the turtle capital of the world giving you 95% chance of turtles on most dive sites – we can all but guarantee them! Learn more about diving and accommodation on Gili Air.
The Senggigi region is the main tourist destination on the on the mainland of Lombok in Indonesia. The main town is Senggigi itself, and the whole area is well known for its beautiful west facing beaches and so offers a cosmopolitan beach holiday with swimming, kayak and surfing available.
Diving from Senggigi means diving everything that Lombok has to offer from one location: 1) taking day-trips to our other operation on Gili Air for diving the Gili Islands (Gili Trawangan, Gili Air and Gili Meno); 2) taking day-trips to our other operation in South Lombok to dive the South Gili’s and Belongas Bay.
We can assist with booking plenty of accommodation possibilities in Senggigi. From budget to high end resorts, Senggigi offers a relaxed stay for all. We have secured deals with a number of these hotels for preferential rates and can offer packages that include diving and accommodation.

Sekotong, a tropical little place with a only a few dive resorts and not much topside goings-on apart from snorkeling, swimming and scuba diving. Our Lombok island dive resorts are quite perfect for couples and families who just want to relax and enjoy the southern Gili’s.
Our South Lombok dive sites reflect a good cross-section of what Indonesia has to offer, and the southern Gili’s offer even the widely traveled and experienced diver a surprising and breathtaking experience. Diving the south Gili islands offers colourful, relaxed reef diving for all levels of training, and fun diving for families and beginners.

Scuba diving Belongas Bay, or Blongas Bay, offers exciting, challenging “adrenalin dives” at the dive sites “The Magnet” and “The Cathedral”. The seasonable sighting of schooling barracudas, tunas, and other pelagic life is fairly regular, and apart from the mobula- and eagle ray season during August and September, hammerheads have the tendency to school around the Magnet end June until early November.
“The Magnet” is famous for its hammerhead shark sightings, which features both Scalloped Hammerhead sharks and the Great Hammerhead sharks. According to experts, “The Magnet” is the one of the only three places in the world where you can see both kinds of hammerhead sharks (the other being the Philippines and Costa Rica).
In Belongas Bay you’ll find an unspoiled underwater paradise with pristine reefs, an intact environment, and impressive diving with huge marine diversity! Check out more about diving and accommodation in Belongas Bay.
