The Best Snorkeling Spots Nusa Penida

Nusa Penida is home to a variety of stunning snorkeling spots that cater to both beginners and experienced snorkelers. Here are some of the top spots you should explore:

1. Manta Bay

Best Spot For : Snorkeling and See Manta Ray

Location : West Nusa Penida

Available For Nusa Penida Snorkeling Sharing and Private Packages

Manta Bay Snorkeling Spot is the most popular in Nusa Penida, and it is the main destination for tourists to snorkel, because here you will most likely meet and snorkel together with the large and beautiful manta rays.

Almost all of Nusa Penida’s snorkeling spots are located in the western part of the island. Manta Bay itself is a bay-shaped spot surrounded by rocks with regular waves. Snorkeling at Manta Bay is deep-water snorkeling so prepare yourself for that.

Why are there so many mantas in Manta Bay, because this location is where plankton gather because it is pushed by the current from the deep sea to the bay, and plankton is the main food for mantas. So this location in the morning becomes a gathering place for mantas to find food.

Although not many mantas come to this location, but if you are lucky then you can see small groups of mantas totaling 3 to 6 mantas.

Tips: Come early in the morning so that the chances of meeting mantas are greater, because usually mantas will gather in the morning. If the waves are big, it is highly recommended to use a life jacket for your safety.

2. Gamat Bay

Best Spot For : The best beach snorkelling on the island

Location : West Nusa Penida

Available For Nusa Penida Snorkeling Sharing and Private Packages

Many tourists and locals claim that this spot is the best for snorkeling. Gamat Bay has such extraordinary underwater beauty that it is not uncommon for many tourists to spend a lot of time there.

Why is Gamat Bay said to be the best? This snorkeling spot has many colorful corals and is inhabited by various marine life including reef fish. In addition, Gamat Bay is fairly large, also very calm and has good visibility.

Actually, if you don’t want to take a snorkeling package, Gamat Bay can be accessed by road and parking your vehicle on the side of the road and then following the path to the shoreline.

Tips: Our advice is to take the Nusa Penida Snorkeling Package and visit this place by boat, as it will be much easier and more comfortable. Avoid visiting by road.

3. Crystal Bay

Best Spot For : Easy to access, no tour needed

Location : West Nusa Penida

Available For Nusa Penida Snorkeling Sharing and Private Packages

This snorkeling spot is a place where you do not have to join a tour to be able to reach it. Because with just a vehicle such as a motorbike or car, you can Snorkel at Crystal Bay.

However, make sure you bring your own snorkeling equipment if you want to enjoy the underwater world at this location. If not, you can rent it on the beach, which is lined with palm trees and many stalls that provide snorkeling equipment rentals.

If you don’t want to bother, you can join a Nusa Penida Snorkeling Tour, either shared or private, which also visits this spot.

The waters in this bay are generally shallow and calm, so it is not too difficult to snorkel at Crystal Bay. Because the waters are calm and not too deep, this spot is considered the safest place to do snorkeling activities.

Turtles are sometimes seen in the bay, but the coral and fish are the main attraction.

Tips: If you come to snorkel alone, try to take a spot in the left corner of the bay to see the best corals and fish in Crystal Bay. It is advisable to come early in the morning before it gets crowded with tourists and tour boats.

4. Turtel Point

Best Spot For : Spotting turtles

Location : West Nusa Penida

Available Only For Nusa Penida Private Snorkeling Package

This spot is not as well known as Manta Bay, Crystal Bay and Gamat Bay, but that’s just part of the attraction, as there are not too many people here so you can snorkel in peace.

Hardly anyone sharing the Nusa Penida Snorkeling Tour visits this location, as it is further south than Manta Bay and adjacent to Kelingking Beach.

From the name alone, you can understand that this spot is one of the best places for you to see sea turtles at close range.

Turtel Point also has good coral reefs and quite varied fish, but unfortunately to get to this location you have to take a Private Tour package which is a little more expensive.

Tips: Avoid visiting this spot during big waves because it will endanger your safety. Make sure you ask your Nusa Penida Snorkeling guide for safe spots and spots when snorkeling to Turtle Point.

5. Wall Bay Point

Best Spot For : A long channel of corals and reef fish

Location : West Nusa Penida

Available For Nusa Penida Snorkeling Sharing and Private Packages

Snorkeling Nusa Penida Wall Bay Point
Best Snorkeling Spots Nusa Penida

Local Penida people often refer to this place as “The Wall” or what is now familiarly called Wall Bay Point, one of the best spots for snorkeling in Nusa Penida. The location is still on the west side of Nusa Penida Island.

This spot is located between Toyapakeh Harbor and Manta Bay, making it one of the favorite locations to visit if you are taking the Nusa Penida Snorkeling Tour Package.

It should be noted that at Wall Bay Point, the ocean currents are quite strong, so it’s a good idea to be more vigilant at this spot.

The corals here are fairly good and there are many fish that you can find while snorkeling. However, when it rains and visibility is not very good, it will be difficult to find fish and enjoy this snorkeling spot in Nusa Penida.

If you are lucky, you can also see manta rays swimming in the deeper water channels along the wall on their way from Manta Bay to the deeper ocean.

The corals are quite deep underwater and hide creatures such as moray eels and nudibranchs.

Tips: The current moves from right to left, so start by snorkeling on the right side of the wall so that the current is in your favor. It’s a good idea to wear a life jacket when snorkeling at this location.

6. Manta Point

Best Spot For : Snorkeling Or Dive and See Manta Ray

Location : West Nusa Penida

Available Only For Nusa Penida Private Snorkeling Package

Best Snorkeling Spots Nusa Penida

This is the last best spot in Nusa Penida, and technically Manta Snorkeling Nusa Penida is more specialized for diving rather than snorkeling.

However, technically you can come to visit Manta Point Nusa Penida to snorkel, but there is no Nusa Penida snorkeling sharing that reaches the place and you can access it by taking a private tour.

The thing to note is that the currents in this location are very strong and you will sometimes be carried away by the current when snorkeling in this location. So you need to be extra careful snorkeling at Manta Point.

Strong currents sometimes make you run out of energy when fighting the current to be able to see the Manta Ray up close.

Tips: Make sure you communicate with your Nusa Penida Snorkeling Tour guide about the safest way and what needs to be considered and wear a life jacket when snorkeling in this location.

Tips Snorkeling Nusa Penida Tour

Bring your own snorkeling equipment

If possible, bring your own snorkeling equipment, as it is much more hygienic and comfortable for you to use when snorkeling in Nusa Penida.

If you are joining a Sharing or Private Snorekling Tour in Nusa Penida, the operator already provides snorkeling equipment, but if you are not smart enough to choose, sometimes it leaks and does not fit you.

So if possible, bring your own snorkeling equipment.

Tips Snorkeling Nusa Penida Tour

Wear a life jacket for your safety

If the old saying ‘it’s better to be safe than sorry’ rings true. Wearing a life jacket while snorkeling in Nusa Penida is one of the best decisions you can make.

Because it certainly guarantees your safety and comfort while snorkeling. You don’t have to prove anything to anyone by not wearing a life jacket, because if something happens you will regret it for the rest of your life.

Especially if you are not confident to snorkel in deep water, especially when Manta Bay experiences big waves.

Tips Snorkeling Nusa Penida Tour

Know what and when major hazards are present

Snorkeling in Nusa Penida is fun and exciting, but it’s also important to understand what and when you might be in danger.

Strong currents and deep waters are things you need to be aware of, always go in groups when snorkeling and do not leave the point that your guide has directed you to.

Avoid swimming and snorkeling when the waves are big and strong, because it will greatly endanger your safety. The danger is that during big waves, you might be dragged and brought to hit the reef, so make sure your safety is more important.

The island is known for its strong ocean currents. Research online or ask locals about ocean currents before swimming or snorkeling in a new location.

In general, the rule is to avoid swimming or snorkeling in the east of Nusa Penida island and be careful in the west.

When it comes to marine life, the main danger at Nusa Penida snorkeling spots is jellyfish.

The jellyfish diet consists mostly of plankton, so you’ll probably find them in the same places as manta rays. Most of the jellyfish around the island are harmless. Box jellyfish are very rare, but should be avoided as they are poisonous.

Lionfish, easily recognizable from a distance by their feather-like mane of fins and long, venomous spines, are venomous but rare.

Rockfish and scorpionfish are also rare, but have been reported in Crystal Bay, so be careful where you step. These fish have spines and/or rock-like skin, so avoid them if you see them.

Don’t be afraid of the risks as thousands of tourists go snorkeling in Nusa Penida without any problems every month.
