Blue Lagoon is just minutes away by traditional boat from the beach in Padang Bay. This shallow coastal reef has a sandy bottom, a wall and a gradual slope. It has a good variety of hard and soft corals and has a surprising variety of fish, from the small tropical fish to the larger fish like sharks and turtles. On rare occasions we even ran into a manta here.
The Ferry Channel is just in front of the beach of Padang Bay where the ferry for Lombok leaves. It is just a few minutes by boat and the gradual slope has a sandy bottom. The dive starts in the ferry channel and ends around the corner on the Tanjung Sari dive site. A great place to look for pygmy sea horses and to spot reef sharks. Due to tides and currents the site is not always accessible.
Pura Jepun lies on the north side of the Padang Bay diving area past Blue Lagoon. This dive site has a sandy bottom and small groups of corals. It is a great location for finding smaller marine life such as sea horses, manti shrimps and crocodile fish. The dive site starts quite shallow and gradually slopes to some 27 metres.
The Tanjung Sari dive site is just North of Padang Bay, 5 minutes by traditional boat. The site consists of a small wall and a reef on a sandy slope. The site is great for spotting interesting smaller marine life such as leaf scorpionfish, nudibranchs and octopus as well as sharks and turtles. It is generally an easy dive and great for exploring. The coral gardens are a delight.
Bias Tugal is on the south side of Padang Bay, just on the right of the ferry channel. It is named after the beach and is well-known for its beautiful corals and its colourful marine life. The shallow area is flat with a sandy bottom and lots of coral patches. The sloping reef starts around 8 metres and goes down to about 30 metres. You often find turtles, white-tip reef sharks, orangutan crab, nudibranchs and schools of fish. If you are lucky you might come across an eagle ray.
The wall is just left of the Blue Lagoon. As the name already suggests this is a coral wall. This short wall starts shallow at around 5 metres and slopes gently to 28 meters. This is a very nice site for macro life such as the leaf scorpionfish, orang-utan crab, moray eels, lion fish, manti shrimp and octopus. Occasionally you find larger marine life such as sharks here.
