Manta Point, Nusa Penida

Manta Point: A Stunning Dive Site in Nusa Penida, Indonesia

Discover the enchanting beauty of Manta Point, a captivating dive site located on the south side of Nusa Penida. Just a short 45-minute boat ride from Nomads Diving, this remarkable destination boasts an array of unique features that attract the mesmerizing Manta Ray.

Manta Point is also home to a diverse range of marine life, including sharks, turtles, and captivating macro species, just waiting to be explored up close.

With its accessible and gentle waters, Manta Point is suitable for divers of all levels, making it an ideal choice for beginners and advanced divers alike. While the currents are typically mild, occasional surges may arise from the southern swell. You can enjoy diving here throughout the year, although the best period is between August and October, when visibility can reach an impressive 20 meters.

Be prepared for varying water temperatures, ranging from as low as 21-22 degrees Celsius to a balmy 29 degrees during the summer months. The average depth of around 10-15 meters allows for comfortable exploration. However, for those seeking more adventurous dives, descending deeper will reveal the renowned "stingray alley."

The highlight of Manta Point is its incredible cleaning station, where mantas gracefully visit their very own beauty salon. These majestic creatures enlist the assistance of specialized cleaner fish, such as wrasse and gobies, to rid themselves of pesky parasites. The site also features a captivating coral slope and a sandy area surrounding the cleaning station, offering an opportunity to spot a myriad of other fascinating species. Keep your eyes peeled for nudibranchs, octopus, blue-spotted stingrays, eagle rays, and even the occasional brown-banded bamboo or wobbegong shark.

Don't miss the chance to explore Manta Point, a haven of underwater wonders right off the coast of Bali, Indonesia.
