/// Diving Nusa Lembongan, Bali

/// Home of the mantas and mola molas!


diving nusa lembongan

Most of the diving in Bali is just off the beautiful south east coast of Sanur and Pandang Bai or Tulamben on the north east coast. We believe the best diving is found around a group of three islands about 15 kilometres east of Sanur. One of these islands, Nusa Lembongan, is home to the latest Two Fish Divers resort; the other two are Nusa Penida and Nusa Ceningan. All three islands are surrounded by amazing sites for diving. These three islands are also the home of the mantas and mola molas (ocean sunfish) that made diving Nusa Lembongan, Bali famous.

/// Diving around Nusa Lembongan


diving nusa lembongan

The coral reefs around Nusa Lembongan and the other islands are very healthy, with an incredibly diverse variety of creatures, and visibility is nearly always 15-25m. During June-October the water can be cooler and a 5mm wetsuit is advisable. As we are based on the island of Nusa Lembongan, most of the dive sites are only 10-20 minutes away making it the perfect location for a lazy way to dive with the reefs and mantas! There are currently approximately 15 dive sites around these islands, with more being discovered all the time. They offer a mixture of fantastic hard corals, colourful soft corals, all sorts of critters from macro to pelagics, and large schools of fish. Discover what special encounters diving Nusa Lembongan can bring. 

/// Best time to see manta rays


diving nusa lembongan

All year round!
Mantas can be seen all year round in the south of Nusa Penida, our neighbouring island. The waters around sites like Manta Point are full of plankton, and this can attract sometimes seven or eight mantas at a time. This part of the island is a wild and remote area with dramatic sea cliffs rearing three hundred feet from the sea.
The best times to visit these sites are when the seas are calm from November-May.

/// Best time to see mola molas


diving nusa lembongan

The mola mola (ocean sunfish) visit us for about four months of the year, another signature of diving Nusa Lembongan, Bali! The best time to see them is July-October. There are sightings on either side of these months, but generally these are less frequent. Mola mola can be seen at most of the dive sites, but Crystal Bay and Blue Corner are where they are seen the most. You can also see eagle rays, wobbegong, tuna, marbled rays, schools of snappers, jacks and shark at these sites.

/// Tulamben Liberty Wreck

We are close enough to Tulamben to offer trips where you can dive the shipwreck of the famous USAT Liberty. Further sites on the south east coast of Bali between Sanur and Candi Dasa offer alternative slopes for daytrips – for the rare occasional that someone gets bored of the mantas and fantastic marine life around Lembongan Island!
