Snorkeling and Scuba Diving in Bali

4.5 133 Reviews | Add your review

The waters just off the coast of Bali are biologically diverse and often enjoy excellent visibility. With dozens of dive sites catering to all ability levels, Bali is a great place to go diving or snorkeling, or to learn how to dive if you’ve never been before.

If you’re staying in or around Kuta, the most convenient diving area is near Sanur. These beginner-friendly dive sites offer shallow coral reefs with abundant fish life. It’s also possible to spot white tip reef sharks in the area.

Many experienced divers come to Bali to see the magnificent Mola Mola, or sunfish. These large and very strange looking fish prefer the open waters, and the best time to see them is from July to October, particularly at the dive sites around Nusa Penida -- about 40 minutes from Sanur.

Many of Bali’s world class dive sites are also great for snorkelers, so if you’re traveling as a family with some divers and other non-divers or children, you can still enjoy a day in the water together at the same site.

One great family friendly option is a Bali Reef Cruise to Lembongan Island. The island, located just southeast of Bali, is lined with beautiful beaches, mangrove forests and colorful reefs. Once you arrive, enjoy a day of diving, snorkeling, banana boat rides, parasailing or simply relaxing on a beach.
