1. Tulamben Beach
Hosting the USAT Liberty wreck, the ship which sank after being torpedoes during WWII, Tulamben beach is an amazing place, especially for someone who loves antiques and wishes to explore as well as unravel the secrets of the past. Exploring it completely till the bottom is a privilege which only experienced divers can afford. But even if you are a beginner diver or want to try snorkelling, you can easily witness the upper part of the wreck as well as spot the colourful marine life.
2. Manta Point
Nestled right at the coast of Nusa Penida, Manta Point is the only destination in Bali where you get to witness the vast population of reef manta rays, the giant yet funny and gentle creatures known for their friendly approach to humans. They usually remain at the coral mound which is just below the surface. So, if you go snorkelling here, there is very high probability that you will easily be able to see the amazing eco system as well as a huge bunch of manta rays circling close to the surface.
3. Lipah Bay
This place attracts a number of tourists, explorers and divers from all over the world, who come here to witness the wreck of a Japanese patrol boat from WWII. Sitting contently at the bottom of Lipah Bay, this ship which was once the reason of death of many, today is responsible for sustaining the life of many magnificent corals and varying marine creatures. Since the boat lies just 12metres below the surface, it is quite easy to access the sunken boat point from Amed Beach as well.
4. Mangrove Point
If you really want to go snorkelling around Nusa Penida and Nusa Lembongan, then mangrove point, located on the north side of Nusa Lembongan is the place for you. Not only, it houses a vast mangrove population which in turn serve as a shallow nursery for a number of baby fishes but it is also known to receive gentler currents, which makes it all the more perfect for snorkelling.
We hope that after this Bali vacation you get to strike off snorkelling from your bucket list.
