Diving in Menjangan
Menjangan is a reef at the northwestern part of the West National Park. The island is surrounded by a coral reef wall that begins at the surface and goes down to 50 meters (165 feet). The waters here are a marine wonderland with visibility around 20-60 meters (65-200 feet), and an abundance of underwater life and activities.
The walls have caves, crevasses and spires and are covered with huge gorgonian fans and barrel sponges. Schooling banner fish, butterfly fish, groupers, frog fish, trigger fish, jack fish, sweetlips, midnight snappers, together with the occasional timid white tip and the black tip reef sharks make for an exciting and safe diving experience.
The dive sites are 3.5hrs from Kuta followed by a 30 minutes boat ride.
