Dive Sites Menjangan, Bali

North-West Bali offers some great, relaxing diving and is testament to the variety Bali has to offer. Best known is Menjangan island - part of Menjangan National Marine Park. Menjangan dive sites boast spectacular reefs and walls, groupers, large groups of jacks and turtles and some beautiful scenery. The dive sites can be reached by taking a boat from Pemuteran. Due to the distance we only visit these dive sites during our dive safaris.

Dive Sites Menjangan Bali

Garden Eel

 This dive site is located at the most northwestern tip of Menjangan Island and can be reached by boat. In order to reach it you need to follow the wall west of the Anchor, navigate around the tip of the island and head almost into the channel between Menjangan and the Bali mainland. In the channel you will find an extremely rich and healthy wall. At the end of the dive you come across a shallow area which is inhabited by garden eels and is known as a good spot for occasional sightings of barracuda, white-tip reef sharks, turtles and napoleon wrasse.

  • Diver Level: All Levels
  • Depth: 5-30 meters
  • Visibility: 10-40 meters
  • Distance to Dive Site: Approximately 4-5 hours by car, 35 minutes by boat

Kapal Budak (Anchor Wreck)

 Most dive sites on Menjangan island boast rich, colourful walls, clear waters and an abundance of reef life. The Anchor Wreck is no different. The wreck is a small wooden boat and one of the oldest in Bali, built in the late 1800’s and sunk in the World War II. It derives its name from the large, encrusted anchor which still lies about 6 to 8 meters from the surface. You can still find some of the ship’s cargo here, such as sheets of copper and brown ceramic bottles. Some of the wreckage, covered in gorgonians, protrudes from the sand. You will find large schools of fish here, reef sharks, moray eels, and some turtles. Joe’s Gone Diving offers dive trips to Kapal Budak as part of our dive safaris.

POS II

 The POS II Ranger Station is another of Menjangan’s impressive wall dives. This site can be accessed by boat or from the beach on Menjangan after a break. A sandy slope leads to the start of the wall at about 12 metres. You will find gorgeous soft corals here, sea fans and sponges. And an abundant colourful reef life: schooling jackfish, turtles, barracudas, nudibranchs and pufferfish. As the visibility is usually very good here, be sure to look down at the sandy bottom to look out for reef sharks and eagle rays. A relaxing dive with plenty to see. Joe’s Gone Diving highly recommends putting Menjangan on your wish list during one of our dive safaris.
