Padang Bai - Bali
Updated: Aug 17
Padang Bai in Bali is a diving jewel and any scuba diver who comes to this small fishing village will never leave disappointed. Scuba diving and snorkelling in Padang Bai is some of the best around Bali. Most dive sites are perfect for beginners, but there are more challenging diving sites for experienced divers. Currents on those dive spots are very attractive for white and black tip reef sharks, various rays, lots of Pelagic fish and big schools of red tooth trigger fish and jack fish. But it is not only the big fish which make Padangbai such an attractive place for scuba divers, as well as being one of the most amazing macro spots Bali can offer.
In Padangbai you can find leaf scorpion fish, robust and ornate ghost pipe fish, pygmy sea horse, many rare nudibranchs, frogfish, spanish dancers, stone fish, rhinopias, cat, nurse, lemon and wobbegong sharks, pipe fish, juvenile bat fish, cattle fish, dragonet fish, sea moth, seahorses and much much more.
Above I have shared some of the photo's taken during my stay. I chose to stay at the Absolute Dive Resort (Absolute Scuba) as a backup choice due to the fact that prior to my arrival Mt Agung became active and I was forced to cancel my planned stay at The Liberty Dive Resort at Tulamben.
