Pemuteran, Lovina and Amed. I love Amed the best.

It is closer to Legian, worth an overnight stay at least and you can walk into the water and snorkel.

Have a look at hotels on Lipah Beach.

Bayu Cottages

Pondok Sari

Hidden Paradise and Coral View

here are some places to snorkel. there are also places to stay and eat at these locations.

padangbai - blue lagoon is 10 minutes north - entry from shore - coral, fish

candidasa - inside breakwall and just outside breakwall - there is great snorkelling at the three offshore islands, organise a local boat to reach it

amed area - close to shore - can drive to venues or get a boat.

lovina - boat to reefs

pemuteran - close to shore or boat to menjangan island

nusa lembongan - close to shore or to edge of surfing reef.

nusa penida – haven’t been but suppose to be good.

Bukit – coral, fish but can be stong currents and waves.

sanur and nusa dua - reefs

west coast of Bali is generally not good for snorkelling - too murky or waves.

in all areas beware of currents, change of tides, jellyfish. ask locals about conditions.
