Best dive sites in Lombok

The Magnet - Located in Belongas Bay, this is Lombok’s most famous dive site – and for very good reasons. The Magnet is a stunning open ocean rock pinnacle which literally attracts fish and pelagics like a magnet does steel. The biggest draw for diving the Magnet is the seasonal hammerheads, which are seen in in schools, together with reef shark sightings, barracuda, trevally, eagle rays and other pelagics. If you enjoy diving with big fish then The Magnet should be on your list. The Lighthouse - Incredible topography and diverse marine life make this dive site a must. Exploring the rocky plateau, canyons and slope you’ll find schools of sweetlips and patrolling white tip reef sharks. Huge boulders create interesting recesses where critters can be found hiding and the huge coral bommies are shrouded with glass fish. Keep an eye out into the blue as well for passing schools of fusiliers, rainbow runners and mackerel. Stairs to Medang - A vibrant coral garden plateau greets you as you start your dive around 14 meters / 45 feet before heading deeper down the “Stairs”. In deeper areas, expect the unexpected – everything from manta rays, reef sharks and passing hammerheads have been seen here. The definite highlight though, is the rugged “stepped” topography from which the site takes its name and the abundant reef fish and corals which bring striking colours to the shallows. Cathedral - This stunning, coral encrusted rock pinnacle is a favourite for many divers. Its open ocean position makes it a major attraction for passing pelagics including eagle rays, hunting trevally, barracuda, schooling mackerel, rainbow runners and fusiliers. Make sure you take time to investigate the corals – there is a wealth of macro-life to be found here as well. Gili Sarang - Best known for “big fish” action and seasonal schooling mobula rays (August and September), Gili Sarang is a collection of pinnacles and boulders which attract pelagics. Frequent encounters here include white tip, black tip and grey reef sharks, huge dog-toothed tuna, great barracuda, giant trevally and jacks. Here you’ll also be able to appreciate the breath-taking, kaleidoscopic soft corals and critters that reside within them.

What to see

Lombok is known for its pelagics, most famously the great and scalloped hammerheads and schooling mobula rays. That’s not all you can find there though - expect to see trevally, tuna, barracuda, reef sharks, marble rays, eagle rays, sea snakes, turtles, schools of mackerel, rainbow runners and fusiliers, hoards of medium sized and small reef fish and if you have a keen eye there is a wealth of critters including numerous nudibranch species, frogfish, scorpionfish, octopus, cuttlefish and so much more!
