The water around menjangan is very clear and the sight is great. You can sea a lots of fishes, turtles and also squids.

We went on a daytrip from Lovina which took around 1h in transportation one way. The water can be a bit cold but it works anyway. If you like diving and snorkeling I would strongly recommend that you head out to Menjangan Island.

I have had the pleasure of snorkeling off Menjangan Island twice in the past 11 years and I am going back in April 2014. The same Balinese man was my guide both times and he is wonderful. I can't remember if he was Wayan or Made (there are lot's of both and can be either male or female) but this gentleman took some amazing photographs of reef life and sells a CD. Well worth the money.
This reef is comparable to the Great Barrier Reef in Australia and has a lot of the same aquatic life.
You don't have to book through a hotel. Just go to the park and find an official guide. If a small Balinese man with a beautiful smile greets you there go with him.

My daughter and I loved the experience there we saw so much fish and corals. Spotted dolphins on the boat ride back. On a return to Bali would definitely be interested in going back to Menjangan Island for a day snorkeling.

We asked at the outset about wetsuits but we're told there was no need, so we just wore out t shirts so we wouldn't get sunburnt. During the snorkeling we felt lots of sharp pinpricks. The next day we woke completely covered in red excruciatingly itchy lumps , that a few dates later continue to be very irritating and uncomfortable.
It's a terrible shame as the snorkeling was fabulous, we've never seen so many varieties of fish and corals and so many fish in total .
Unfortunately, a full wetsuit could have avoided what is now just an awful memory of what could have been a once in a lifetime experience.

The snorkelling here was terrific. We saw a huge variety of brightly coloured fish of all sizes, stone fish, star fish, coloured corals, a moray eel and an octopus. The water was calm and visibilty was good. Travelling over to the Isl on the traditional timber boat was fantastic. The surrounding national park creates a gorgeous backdrop of forest clad mountains.
