Have you heard about the phenomenal hammerhead sighting in South Lombok? Have you read reviews of “The Magnet” dive site? If you are an experienced diver and want an adrenaline pumping dive with these incredible predators The Magnet needs to be on your bucket list – and hammerhead season is now on!
Diving The Magnet – South Lombok
We dive The Magnet from both our operations in South Lombok – we have a dive operation in Belongas Bay and we also run day-trips from our dive center in Sekotong – and we are lucky enough to see two species of hammerheads: Great Hammerheads and Scalloped Hammerheads.
The Magnet is a rock pinnacle which is entirely encrusted in corals and which attracts schooling fish and hammerheads! Hammerheads aren’t the only highlight of diving here though, white tip reef sharks, mobula rays, barracudas, tunas, jacks and trevally are all common sightings.
The Magnet is best dived by experienced divers due to the currents which can whip around the pinnacle – but as the old adage goes: no current, no fish!
The best time to dive The Magnet (for hammerhead sightings) is from now through to the end of October so come and check us out soon in South Lombok!
South Lombok is also known for its incredible scenery, pristine white sand beaches and awesome surfing. Why not combine South Lombok with a trip to Bali and see even more of Indonesia’s best dive sites?
