The Buyuk site is located at the northeastern end of the island of Nusa Penida, and consists of a coral plateau and a slope; this topography is characteristic of the north coast of Nusa Penida.

Scuba diving at Buyuk is particularly known for its frequentation by thresher sharks. This is the main interest of this dive site, but you have to be lucky enough to be able to meet and observe them. As all divers know, no encounter is ever guaranteed underwater.
In season (from July to October), it is also possible to observe mola-mola there.

If sharks and mola-mola are not there, and although this site is a little less richly endowed with corals, sponges and gorgonians than SD, PED or Sandalwood, you will be able to observe macro as well as a multitude reef fish such as angel fish, surgeonfish, clown fish, moray eels, triggerfish.
Turtles also frequent this part of the north coast of Nusa Penida.

Due to the presence of current, more or less strong depending on the period, you can come across jacks, barracudas, tuna ...
Visibility can be a little worse on this site due to the presence of sandy bottom and currents. It remains, however, in general, very good to fully enjoy its dive.

In any case, this site, like all the sites in Nusa Penida, is not lacking in interest and can be the meeting place for fabulous meetings; we have already observed two thresher sharks and several mola-mola during the same dive.

Due to the currents, it is not always possible to dive on this site.


All the dives offered are subject to good weather conditions; these can change quickly. Therefore, for security reasons, we reserve the right to cancel dives or to modify and adapt the planned program at any time.
