Scuba Diving in Nusa Penida is to dive in an underwater paradise with an extraordinary fauna and flora! You can meet sharks, groupers, platax, barracudas, manta rays, mola-molas (Sunfish) in season, turtles, but also pygmy seahorses, shrimps, nudibranchs or scorpion-fish...

The dives are very diversified, and in spite of the presence of currents which can be strong, most of the sites are accessible to all divers.

Not all the dive sites are listed on our website; contact us for more information or specific or customized requests.

NUSA PENIDA DIVE SITES

 
manta ray - manta point

Manta Point

The must-see site of Nusa Penida!
In the extreme South of the island, the site of Manta Point is of course famous for the frequent presence of a large quantity of manta rays. But other species (bamboo sharks, mola-mola, macro...), as well as the topography of the different parts of the site, are of great interest.

Crystal Bay

Crystal Bay is undoubtedly, with Manta Point, one of the most famous sites of Nusa Penida, because of the clarity of the water in this bay, but especially because of the more frequent presence, in season (from July to September), of mola-mola.
But its interest is not limited to mola-mola... wobbegong, turtles, carrangues, nudibranchs and other macro are worth diving and diving again.

Ceningan Wall

Ceningan Wall gathers several distinct dive sites, from the North to the South of the island of Ceningan. These sites are exposed to the currents of the channel between Ceningan and Nusa Penida. Due to the presence of these currents, it's possible to observe large specimens of stingrays, eagle rays, mola-mola. For the same reason, this site is however reserved for experienced divers.

PED

In front of our diving center and facing Mount Agung, the dives on PED are often drift dives and allow to observe a varied fauna (turtles very frequently, coral field, sponges, reef fish, etc.). Deeper or in the blue, barracudas, tunas or jacks sometimes make us the pleasure of their presence.
This site is accessible to all levels, from the first dive.

thresher shark Buyuk

Buyuk

At the extreme North-East of the island, the site of Buyug is known for the possibility to observe, in particular, thresher sharks and mola-mola. 
Even if corals and sponges are not present in such a large quantity as on PED or SD, for example, it is worth exploring in search of thresher sharks, and mola-mola (in season).

Blue Corner

For the current and "big fish" amateurs: on Blue Corner it is frequent to meet barracudas and rays (stingrays, eagles...). In season, mola-mola also sometimes visit this site.
Because of the strong currents, this site, intended for experienced divers, is not always practicable. Trips on this site are only done with divers who have already dived with us on other sites.

On this site also, current and "big" fish are regularly present; attracting sharks (whale, grey...), rays, in particular, around a rocky formation located at several tens of meters from the coast.
The plateaus and drop-offs of this atypical site are full of corals, gorgonians and fish of all kinds.
This dive is aimed at experienced divers who have already dived with us on other sites.

In the East of Nusa Penida, the dives take place almost always in drift, above a plateau and a slope with a more or less pronounced slope.
The coral formations, with sandy areas in some places, are home to many surprises (nudibranchs, reef sharks...).
In the blue, tunas and jacks are regularly seen, and sometimes mola-mola.

Suana

On this part of the east coast of Nusa Penida, the currents can start to be stronger. And the topography is also changing.
On this site, you will be able to observe, among other things, turtles and reef fish due to the strong presence of corals and sponges with multiple colors.
The dives are done in drift, sometimes with a very strong intensity, above a slope or along a drop-off.

School of fish - Malibu

Malibu Point

Located at the southern end of the East coast of Nusa Penida, this site is much less frequented by divers because of its remoteness. It is therefore sometimes possible to enjoy its reef, with more or less steep parts, and its fauna (turtles, moray eels, macro, etc.) without meeting other divers.
Here again, the currents can be very strong, so it is sometimes possible to meet sharks and mola-mola.
