Covering more than 5,000 km², Bali is a sumptuous and multifaceted Indonesian island. Nestled between the islands of Java and Lombok, it has everything you need for a successful getaway on land and underwater. There are beautiful beaches, volcanoes, rice terraces, a fascinating culture and much more. In addition, there are some impressive dive sites waiting to be explored. Here are 3 that you should not miss for a memorable adventure.
THE WRECK OF THE USS LIBERTY
Located on the east coast of Bali, the USS Liberty wreck site is one of the best dive sites on the island. Very spectacular, it allows you to discover a great variety of fish and of course the famous wreck of the USS Liberty.
For your information, this wreck is one of the most enchanting in the world. It is certain to leave you speechless. So don't hesitate to discover it during your stay in Bali. Be careful when you visit, however, as access to the water is not easy for some people. Indeed, you have to go through slippery pebbles. After that, you have to face the waves.
Located in the southeast of Bali, Crystal Bay is one of the most popular dive sites on the island of Nusa Penida. And there is a good reason for this. This beautiful site is a great opportunity to see sunfish, but not only! It also offers you the possibility to see stingrays and marbled rays.
In order to get the most out of your dive at Crystal Bay, the best time to dive is from August to October. During these months, you will have a better chance of seeing the sunfish without having to go down to the depths of the ocean. This is when these gigantic fish come up to feed on microscopic algae. During the other months, you can only see them at a depth of about 30 metres.
Are you dreaming of a truly fantastic dive? The Gili Selang dive site is one to include in your Bali dive itinerary. Exploring it is an opportunity to see some truly extraordinary corals.
Gili Selang is home to one of the most spectacular coral gardens in the world. There you will be amazed by a multitude of colours and shapes, it is as if you are in an enchanted world.
The only concern with Gili Selang is that it can be difficult to access due to strong currents. However, you can still make progress by staying close to the bottom.
See you soon,
