What we say: 4 stars

Crystal Bay, Manta Point and SD Point are the best known of Nusa Penida's dive spots. Manta Point is known for, well, manta rays but as was very clearly explained to us, there is nothing else here to see — so if the manta rays are out of town there is no point getting in the water. Crowd pleasing Crystal Bay is famous for sunfish (mola molas).

The waters off Penida are known for their strong currents, and if you're learning, Bali is more suited to absolute beginners.

There is one dive shop on Nusa Penida, the Czech-run Mutiara Nusa (see the accommodation section for details). Otherwise you'll need to organise your diving from Nusa Lembongan or Bali.

You can see a map of the Nusa Penida dive sites here.
