Best dive sites in Lombok

Deep Turbo - Depth: 22 – 30+ meters Level: Advanced Current: Mild-Very Strong Marine Life: Rays, sharks and large schools of fish are often sited here Highlights: Topography of the reef and chance of eagle rays Deep Turbo is on the north-east side of Gili Trawangan. The site consists of impressive gorges, ridges and sea mounds surrounded by a sandy bottom where fields of garden eels, blue spotted stingrays and cuttlefish can be found. There are also several overhangs and small caves where many creatures live. You can find a huge variety of tropical reef fish and some frequent larger visitors include white tip reef sharks, barracuda and even eagle rays. The soft and hard coral are magnificent with giant Gorgonian sea fans. It is also a great area for a wide variety of nudibranches and if you’re lucky you can find pygmy seahorses! It has an average depth of 25 meters and at times there can be strong current, due to which it is best suited to more advanced divers.

Halik - Depth: 5 – 30+ meters Level: All levels Current: Strong at full and new moon Marine Life: Turtles, reef sharks, humphead parrotfish, snapper and triggerfish Highlights: Small caves home to juvenile reef sharks Halik reef dive site is situated on the northern side of Gili Trawangan and is enjoyable for all divers. The Gili Islands deliver yet again with this fabulous aquarium-like dive site. It has a beautiful platform edge that then slopes down from 5 to 15 meters with a series of coral bommies. In the shallows is a huge abundance and variety of life; schools of anthias dart in and out of the corals protection as large colourful sweetlips, trevallies and surgeonfish chase them. The small caves can be home to juvenile white tip reef sharks and when there is a light current this is a perfect site for an easy drift! Divers, who are interested in deep diving, can descend into her gullies and canyons that drop down to 40 meters; there you can find the larger fish species and chances to see adult reef sharks.

Hans Reef - Depth: 7 – 25 meters Level: All Levels Current: From nothing to strong Marine Life: Turtles, giant pufferfish, nudibranches, frogfish, octopus and cuttlefish Highlights: Large pinnacles, sand gullies, stingrays and a huge variety of macro life can found here There are many ways to explore this site and it give you something new to spot every time you visit. The sandy patch starts at around 7 meters; there you can find garden eels, sand lizardfish, frogfish, flounder and sea cucumbers. Going in an eastern direction you cross the ‘garden’ of the site dropping down to 15 meters; in the sea grass you can often find blue spotted stingrays and a diversity of smaller marine life. Along the sloping valleys batfish can be seen along with octopus and cuttlefish. On the large pinnacles there is lots of life to be found such as scorpion fish, puffers, schools of tropical reef fish and huge pink barrel sponges with sleepy turtles napping on top!

Shark Point - Depth: 6m - 30+ meters Level: All Levels Current: Strong at new and full moon Marine Life: Reef sharks, turtles, humphead parrotfish, large schools of fish Highlights: Canyons that run parallel to the shore, excellent site for viewing the big stuff! A flat sandy bottom turns into a series of progressively deeper canyons that run parallel to the eastern shore of Gili Trawangan. This is a very popular site due to the sheer variety of life that can be seen on a single dive. Reef sharks can be seen cursing through the canyons while lazy turtles can be spotted in the shallows and every full moon it is a favorite hangout for schools of huge humphead parrotfish. This site also houses the Glenn Nusa Wreck which was deliberately sunk in February 2016 she sits upright, on a sandy bottom, in about 25 meters of water on the eastern side of Gili Trawangan. The visibility at this site is usually excellent and the opportunities for underwater photo enthusiasts are fantastic. Slowly but surely she is being turned into an artificial reef and already provides shelter to many fish species. Sponges and corals are starting to encrust her and every passing year she becomes more and more beautiful in her mantle of living reef.

Simon's Reef - Depth: 18 – 30+ meters Level: Advanced Current: Mild-Very Strong Marine Life: Rays and larger fish species Highlights: Topography of the reef and variety of corals Simon’s Reef is on the north-east side of Gili Meno. A magical deep dive that offers a fantastic variety of corals, not seen anywhere else on the Gili Islands. At 30 meters there is a sandy bottom between large impressive sea-mounds. These structures range in size with interesting overhangs and outcrops along with magnificent sand formations similar to sand dunes in a desert. Fields of garden eels, blue spotted stingrays and even cuttlefish are often sighted here. Finishing on a pinnacle peppered with tropical reef fish.

Turtle City/Heaven - Depth: 6m – 35m Level: All Levels Current: From nothing to strong, sometimes with a split Marine Life: Turtles, sergeant majors, scorpion fish, mantis shrimps and cuttlefish Highlights: Large pinnacle with lots of turtles! Turtle city is located on the north- east side of Gili Meno. The average depth is around 18 meters. The dive site is situated around a large pinnacle peaking at 10 meters. It is a great sight for all levels of divers and as the name suggests is ideal for seeing lots of beautiful turtles! Around the pinnacle you can see large schools of small fish such as clown fish, damsels and sergeant majors. When exploring around the slopes you may also find many shrimps, octopus, cuttlefish, scorpion fish and giant blue puffer fish. Finally, at the top of the pinnacle you will find some cage houses with giant clams! If you are looking for turtles, beautiful coral valley coverage with swarms of colorful fish this site is just perfect.

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.

Resort Description

Gili Air is the perfect place to visit as everything is in walking distance and despite its small size there are plenty of activities to choose from. 

The island is part of the famous Gili Islands, though Gili Air is not as busy as Gili Trawangan. Still, there are plenty of bars and restaurants. Guest have access to large open spaces with bean bags, picnic tables and a coffee bar are the ideal spot to hang out or read a book. The 25-meter swimming pool with plenty of sun beds is the perfect place to gaze over the mountains of Lombok and to contemplate while watching the boats roll in.

Oceans 5 Dive Resort is located right at the harbour of Gili Air. You jump off the boat and enter the resort, easy! As a Dive Resort, there is always a cozy buzz of divers preparing for the next dive, students learning skills in the swimming pool and resort guest enjoying a cup of coffee at our coffee bar. 

Oceans 5 is centrally located at a 5-minute walk from the sunset side of the island. In 5 minutes eastwards you're at the central part of the island where you can find most of the bars and restaurants. The local village is right behind the resort and the harbour is literally one minute away. Getting around on Gili Air is easy and the resort is located conveniently next to the harbour when you arrive on this little island paradise!
