Menjangan Island is located in the Taman National Bali Barat (Bali National Park), 25-30 minutes by boat from Pemuteran depending on sea conditions and is one of the best known dive locations in Bali.
Diving and snorkeling opportunities abound around Menjangan Island which is roughly 2km in length by just over half km in width. Menjangan Island holds more than a dozen recognised sites, ranging from sheer drop offs to 60+mtrs, small caves, sandy slopes and a beautiful blue green lagoon with some very nice resident ghost pipefish. With Menjangan Island being located so close to the straits between Bali & Java, sightings of deep water pelagics are a regular occurrence. During the rainy season is the best time to have a chance to see manta and baby (±7mtr) whaleshark, but these, like everything, cannot be guaranteed. However bigger fish are the norm at Menjangan, turtle, napoleon, grouper, big barracuda and shark are all regularly seen. But don’t be surprised if you’re shown and entranced by the little things as well. Menjangan Island also has its own little wreck known as Anchor Wreck named because of the anchor located in 5mtrs of water at the top of the reef. This is the wreck of a 200+ yr old wooden trading vessel, so there is not much left to look at and it is very deep.
Be warned however that there is a National Park entrance fee of 200,000Rps per person, per day. This additional fee is payable on-site. Children 12yrs and under are exempt from this new entry fee.
