Best dive sites in Bali

USAT Liberty – Bali’s most famous dive site offers a chance to see schools of bumphead parrotfish, black sand muck diving, and a coral encrusted wreck. The USAT (United States Army Transport) Liberty was awaiting repairs on the shore when lava flow from an erupting Mount Agung pushed her back into the water where she now lays on her side. Starting at just over five meters and extending down to 30 meters, this wreck is a marine life hotspot. Look out for barracuda, turtles, pygmy seahorses on fans, numerous species of nudibranch, sting rays and a wealth of critters. Gili Tepekong – These magnificent rock pinnacles are encrusted with a vibrant mix of hard and soft corals and offer stunning underwater topographies ranging from walls and slopes to canyons and swim-throughs. Biomass here is exceptional with hoards of fish occupying the reef. It's a great site for spotting reef sharks and seasonal Mola Mola. Due to mild-strong currents, Gili Tepekong is an advanced dive site and is recommended for experienced divers. Gili Selang – Starting out on the black sand slope you’ll be impressed by the variety of nudibranch and other macro critters as you head down to the top of the reef. The reef and wall offer gorgonian fans, rope sponges, branching corals, occasional bommies, colorful soft corals and barrel sponges in the deeper areas. Look out for moray eels, trevally, cuttlefish and pygmy seahorses camouflaged in the fans with schooling fusiliers and passing pelagics in the blue. Due to mild-strong currents, Gili Selang is an advanced dive site and is recommended for experienced divers. Eel Garden – This is a beautiful dive site which takes its name from a sandy ridge, populated by hundreds of garden eels that sway to and fro in the plankton rich currents. This is a diverse dive site where you can spot pelagics and a wealth of critters on the reefs and sandy slopes. Underwater Temple – Also known as “Temple Garden” or “Taman Pura” this site is an artificial reef designed to look like a traditional Balinese temple. There are sunken stone statues of Buddha and Ganesha behind ornate Balinese gateways. If there was ever a site that reflected Balinese spiritualism underwater, this is it! Bali is home to innumerable dive sites which offer diverse topographies and marine life. Other notable sites in Bali include: Coral Gardens, Napoleon Reef, Secret Bay, Jemeluk Bay and Blue Lagoon.

What to see

Bali has one of the most diverse underwater environments the ocean has to offer. Famous for sightings of Mola Molas, mantas and sharks it would be easy to overlook the other riches available. Tuna and barracuda stalk the reef. Vibrancy comes from in the from the 2500 varieties of reef fish that make Balis reefs their home. Octopus, cuttlefish and scorpion fish hide in plain sight. Divers will often encounter turtles here. Discover pygmy seahorses, octopus, frogfish and an array of nudibranch.

Resort Description

Ceningan Divers is a multi-award winning boutique eco resort that is committed to preserving the island’s natural beauty and offers some of Bali’s best diving.

The resort takes protecting the planet seriously and you can see their passion for eco tourism at every turn, from the metal straws and reusable containers in the restaurant, to its Green Fins approach to sustainable scuba diving. They run a weekly beach clean up program and are even opening a mangrove nursery on site to offset carbon output. 

Turn left just after the yellow bridge, and enter a serene garden, interspersed with leafy vines, tropical shrubs and vibrant pink flowers. The resort has eight traditional, thatched-roof bungalows, each with comfy beds, air conditioning, hot running water and a balcony.

In the grounds of the resort you'll find the pool, the Mangrove Restaurant, Phoenix Bar, Ceningan Lounge (where you can enjoy some shisha and play board games) and the resort’s private jetty. There's also much on offer outside the resort, including cycling, massages, zip lining, sea weed farms and the Gala-Gala Underground House.

The diving around Ceningan Divers is renowned for the majestic manta rays that frequently visit for a feed or clean and the annual mola-mola (oceanic sunfish) season, which runs from July until October. The reefs around the island are teaming with colour and shimmering tropical fish, with average visibility at 20-35m.
