Ceningan wall, Nusa Lembongan, Bali, Indonesia

Located on the east edge of Nusa Ceningan this impressive wall dive can only be dived during slack high tide when conditions allow. In the channel between Nusa Ceningan and Nusa Penida the site experiences strong currents which accounts for the impressive marine life that can be seen there.

The wall itself has abundant soft corals and macro life (especially nudibranchs), and out in the blue pelagic species can be seen, including Mola alexandrini and shark and ray species.
