Menjangan Island is situated off the northwest coast of Bali and it is an internationally recognized dive location, famous for its unbelievable visibility of up to 50m/164ft and great wall-diving opportunities. Menjangan's walls that start at 10m/32ft deep and plunge to the deepest of 60m/196ft, are covered all the way with beautiful coral growth, large sponges and gorgonian fans. There are many crevices, overhangs, nooks and crannies on the walls that provide hiding places for amazing little creatures and a wide variety of small reef fish.
