Dive Sites at Menjangan Island
We are keeping all dive site details in our book of secrets, but here is a little about the three popular sites where we like to take divers:
Depth : 12 – 45 meters
Description : Impressive wall leading to a sandy bottom at a depth ranging from 35 – 45 meters. This dive site is almost divided into three sections that allow us to change our route depending on the conditions. From one part we have a healthy and impressive wall. We have a cauldron-shaped area with Eel Garden feeding in the current of a sandy bottom area, and we also have a coral garden on a plateau ranging from 5 – 15 meters (be aware of current on this part of the dive).
Depth : 5 – 32 meters
Description : Right between Anchor Wreck and Sandy Slope, Dream Wall is one of our favorite walls around the island. It offers a nice little plateau at a depth of 8 meters and goes down to around 32 meters. While heading to the east, we can see an overhang at 25 meters which is filled with life. The gorgonian sea fans and the hard and soft coral of the wall will for sure be a diver’s dream. Watch out for turtles on this dive site. 🙂
Depth : 6 – 35 meters
Description : Ideal for beginners and more experienced divers, this reef offers a few canyons and caves that are beautiful. The sun rays shining into the cave through light holes will take you to another world. Small whitetip sharks can sometimes be seen in the big cave at around 15 meters deep. Nudibranchs, electric clams and frogfish can also be spotted here.
