Bali Dive sites Malibu Point is on the east coast of Nusa Penida, outside Suana village. The area is small and the conditions are tricky (not always possible to dive) but you can see large pelagic in schools: jacks, dog tooth tuna, rainbow runners, sharks and mantas. Manta Point (Batu Lumbung): Compared to the gentle slopes of Bali nearby this is an entirely different place with its deep vertical walls. Whole junks of rocks and pieces of the cliff seem to have fallen into the sea. You dive in one of the two bays that are just a little more protected. There’s no need to go deep, the mantas are gathering

The south of  Bali is known for its current swept dive sites around the islands of Nusa Penida, Nusa Ceningan and Nusa Lembongan where you find some really remarkable animals – the Mola Mola sunfish as well as large pelagic fish such as tunas, rays, manta rays, mackerels and sharks. There are often very strong and unpredictable currents and undertows, and cold water often wells up to the shallow areas, resulting in water temperatures of 23 degrees or less. Visibility usually is good. Nusa Penida It’s a large island located in the southeast of Bali, across the Badung Strait. To the northwest lie two smaller flatter islands, Nusa Ceningan and Nusa
