Manta ray at Manta Point, Bali

Scuba Diving in Bali, Indonesia

Reader Reviews:

Dive Site: Manta Point

Location: Nusa Penida, Bali, Indonesia

Description: Reef

Depth: 5 - 30 metres (16 - 100 feet)

Visibility: 20 - 25 metres (65 - 80 feet)

Rating: *****

This is a limestone rock off the southwest coast of Nusa Penida. The above water scenery is dramatic with limestone cliffs that descend straight into the ocean. The swell can be very strong, therefore it is recommended that this dive should be done early in the morning before the wind starts to pick up. The bare limestone rock slopes down and there is no real current in here just swell. The only reason to dive here is to see the 2 - 4m wide mantas. You may also see other pelagic such as tuna, and tiger mackerel. If mantas aren't there, there is very little else to see except water, sand, limestone rock and your buddy. This is the place where they usually come to feed, but there is no guarantee of seeing them.

Everyone seems to think there is nothing else to see here but there is plenty including lovely nudis, egg cowries etc


There is a lot to see at this site if you look near the cleaning staion. This is a cleaning staion, not a feeding area. You can go any time of day but there is a lot of surge in the afternoon. You will just feel like you're in a whashing machine during the dive and for the rest of the day.
