Crystal Bay, Nusa Penida

Located on the west-side of Nusa Penida Island, Crystal Bay has two coral reef formations separated by sand slopes. The combination of slopes and walls that form the topography at this dive site goes down to more than 50 meters and meets with large rock which is an ideal place for a cleaning station for sunfish.

Crystal Bay plays host to many different marine species. There is much hard and soft coral, which sustains healthy populations of turtles, fish, and macro marine life.
