Menjangan Island Diving

Menjangan Island Diving


Menjangan Island is famous for having Bali’s most beautiful wall-diving. The underwater topography depends on the exact dive site but most of them start on the island shelf where we tie to a mooring. We will start the dive on the shelf at about 5 meters which is also a great place for snorkeling. This shelf extend out from the island for about 200 meters, then begins to descend at various angles. For the most part the North East of the island gently slopes down to about 40 meters, and the South West features a much more dramatic wall dropping to more than 50 meters.

Conditions at Menjangan Island tend to be very gentle with visibility getting up to 40 meters at certain times of the year. The reef scenery, coupled with the marine life is perfect for those wanting to get photos. The dramatic backdrop of the walls and abundance of fish life makes is easy for photographers to get that perfect shot. It is unusual to see many large pelagics in this area due to the island being protected from the cold currents coming in from the sea. Although whale sharks are occasionally spotted and even a sperm whale was seen here this year.

Eel Garden


This is located at the most western point of Menjangan Island. To navigate, we usually start on the North wall and drift along the west coast to end up in the channel between the mainland of Bali and the island of Menjangan. There can be some current at this dive site and so we recommend that divers with little experience start at some of the other beautiful sites around the island. Due to this current this site has fantastic diversity of fish and coral. Good to snorkel as well, this dive site is situated next to the most beautiful virgin beach of the island. This dive site is a must during your stay in West Bali National Park.

Anchor Wreck / Kapal Budak


Another famous dive site of Menjangan Island is called Kapal Budak, which means Anchor Wreck in Bahasa. It got its name from the large anchor that lies at about 6 meters. At about 33 meters, lies some pieces of a large wooden cargo boat built 150 years ago. Nobody knows the name of the shipwreck or why it is laying on the bottom of this gigantic wall. Some of the remains are still underwater but a lot of them have been taken out by divers.
