Dive Candidasa: discover the spectacular coral landscape

Dive Candidasa and swim with large schools of fish at Gili Tepekong and Gili Mimpang. The coral landscape is impressive and due to the strong currents at times, you can often find pelagic fish here such as sharks and, in the right season, the sunfish (mola mola). Due to the sometimes challenging conditions, only advanced divers can dive here. Joe’s Gone Diving organises regular day trips to this stunning area.
