Seven world class dive sites lie off the coast of Waka Shorea Resort at Menjangan Island. This small, uninhabited island off the north west coast of Bali has been named as one of the most spectacular coral reefs of Bali. Here, the waters are clear and waves are minimal, ensuring one of the most delightful sets of conditions for diving or snorkeling in Bali. Menjangan Island is also called Deer Island because of the Menjangan deer, a species endemic to this part of Indonesia which make an annual migration across the channel from the mainland of Bali. Its local name is Pulau Menjangan.
Underwater sites range from sheltered and shallow coral gardens to vertical reef walls smothered with sea fans. From pygmy seahorses to schools of snappers, vivid gorgonians to reef sharks, sand banks with garden eels to magnificent formations of hard corals, Menjangan represents well the huge diversity of south east Asia’s coral reefs. Visibility is normally excellent, ranging from between 15 and 50 metres.
