Instead of taking a boat from Bali, we opted to take a boat from a small beach at Bangsring, a little north from Banyuwangi. The beautiful resort of Bangsring Breeze organizes day tours to nearby islands such as Pulau Tabuhan and Menjangan Island. Menjangan is in one worth magical. The underwater world I say is the best in Bali, light... More

We went to two spots to snorkel with Fun and Fun. The first spot was very clear with lots of fish and coral. The second spot did not have as great clarity, nor as much coral. I have never snorkeled before, so I can't really compare this to anywhere else. The next day we went to Biorock and snorkeled. Honestly,... More

We had fabulous snorkelling here. Lots of tropical fish in our first spot and corals I have never seen before in the coral garden. Spotted a turtle and on land a deer. Have snorkelled many spots including Fiji ,Great Barrier, Ningaloo , Hawaii, Rarotonga, Red Sea Thailand and this is one of the easiest to get too and has heaps... More

Amazing diving spot off the coast of Bali. For divers of all levels, and snorkelers too. Expect one of the most colorful experiences of your life. Truly breathtaking!

Took us about 2.5 hours from Lovina to get to the jump-off point for the island - partially because a local indoor market had burned down and so the market had relocated to the streets, which was an interesting diversion! Sorting out the snorkel gear took a bit of time, so recommend that if you have your own its worth... More

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!
