Diving in Nusa Penida

In Bali’s south-east, there is a cluster of three islands, Nusa Penida, Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Ceningan, of which the former is the largest and least developed, home breath-taking landscapes and marine life and the chance to see the mola-mola fish between August and October. It is also a great place to spot majestic manta rays year-round. Here the waters are cooler but incredibly clear and you can enjoy views of amazing coral along with reef sharks, turtles and a rainbow of different fish.
