I've snorkeled in various places and this was one of my favorites. Lots of colorful fish and coral in a beautiful environment.

Picked out Menjangan Island as the site we wanted to go snorkeling in Bali after getting recommendations as to the variety of sea life to be found. Traveled to Labuhan Lalang as advised to negotiate a price. Having an Indonesian partner helps obtain a local rate but there seems to be a cartel in operation and the best price we... More

This was our primary reason for visiting Permuteran as I had read this was some of the best snorkeling anywhere. We found it to be average. The water was fairly clear and the variety of coral didn't seem to live up to its reputation. There were a variety of small species of colorful fish. The part of the island we... More

We went on a dive trip with Werner Lau, and thoroughly enjoyed it. The visibility was good and the coral and fish abundant.

The coral reef here is so diverse and abundant it makes for excellent snorkeling. My travel partner had a similar experience diving, and we were both really happy to have made it out to this remote corner of Bali. Interestingly, we saw a deer swimming in the waters just off the island before we went in the water. Neat!

The best! Incredible fish in warm seas. You need to go to the Harbor near Pemuteran and book a boat. We had our travel agent do the booking ahead of time, but doubt that that's necessary.

The corals are nice and it's better than Amed or Padangbai. The water is clear, there are fish and depending on your dive or snorkel site the profile is interesting with walls etc. We were lucky to see a turtle while diving, in the season we where told that there may be whalesharks. Menjagan is also one of the places... More

Menjangan snorkeling and dive sites are fantastic - lots of small fish, some beautiful corals and fans. We shared a boat with a mixture of snorkelers and divers, often a site that suits one doesn't suit the other but not here, the sites were great for both. Visibility was patchy in places but one the whole pretty good. Recommended day... More

4 dives in Menganan - all of which were absolutely brilliant. Having dived over 150 times, Menganan sure didn't disappoint. Easy to get to from Pemuteran where we stayed for 3 nights, the visibility was great. Recommended.
