“Great Snorkelling”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2012

If you want to snorkel and don't fancy diving this is a great place. It is best to snorkel earlier in the day as I noticed that the later there was a little less clarity in the water.
The beach is from end to end covered in coral and the reef project has some interesting coral structures under the water to promote coral growth.

The coral starts from about as close as 10m from the shore line and there are flat areas as close as 1m from the surface with other areas as deep as 10m+ which can still clearly be seen.

There are boats in the area which consist of the dive boats, however, the area is set up to encourage snorkelling and all the main sites have bouys over them and whenever I was snorkelling boats were well aware of my location and waved to me to let me know they had seen me if approaching anywhere near by.

Its a nice project and there are plenty of reef fish to see. Of the places I snorkelled within Bali i'd say it was the best other than Menjangen Island, depending on which site you were at.

I think if you wanted to you could spend 1-2 days as there is quite a lot of coral and a number of different areas. As with all snorkelling you could go to the same place on 2 occasions and see 2 different things.

“Great snorkeling”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2012

Beautiful reefgarden directly at the beach. At our first day at Permuteran we were positively surprised about the snorkeling possibilities. Though after a visit to Menjangan this site is a little disapointing and it will not surprise for several days. Make sure you talk to one of the locals (diving schools) to get information on the project which is very interesting. If you dive or skindive here please bring a bag to take plastic from the bottom and help the Permuteran Reef Gardeners, the best way to help!
