Batu Belah – Coral Garden


This is one of the most beautiful reefs off the coast of Bali and it is renowned for having the highest amount of fish, it remains a favourite site of the Fab Dive Center. As an easy dive and has a depth between 10-30 meters so it’s open to all levels of divers because the current remains mild. You can enter the dive site from the sandy and rocky beach and after a few meters of beach you can see where the coral reef begins. The nutrient rich waters of the Lombok strait and cooled off lava gives this site a vibrancy in its sponge like coral and the numerous marine life that live in it. There are many schooling fish in this area such as snappers, batfish and fusiliers and if lucky you can also see tuna that often patrol for prey. Another good site for macro and muck divers here you can admire the many nudibranch, lobsters, crabs and mantis shrimps amongst the anemones which can be found with the reef and if you are lucky you can find giant frog fish and leaf scorpion fish aswell..
