Menjangan Diving Holidays: An Overview
For those seeking an off-the-beaten path Bali experience, Menjangan is the perfect spot to explore. Sitting in the northwest corner of Bali, unspoilt by an influx of visitors, you'll find a verdant coastline rimmed with long stretches of white sand and vibrant coral gardens waiting beneath the surface.
Dive sites surrounding the area vary in topography and offer refuge to one of the most stunning reef fish out there - the mandarin fish. These beauties wait until the sun begins to set and then rise from their coral crevices to perform their iconic mating dances. The illusive mimic octopus can also be spotted here, as well as turtles, fusiliers, scorpion fish and multiple types of nudibranchs and sharks.
In between dives, travellers can explore the surrounding area of West Bali National Park. Choose to go on horseback, bicycle or simply walk through this lush tropical forest, glimpsing macaque monkeys, sambar deer, Bali starlings and other rare birds along the way. Or, navigate the mangrove maze along the coastline in a kayak or stand-up paddleboard, just make sure to take your snorkel gear along for occasional dips as you go!
