5 Best Snorkeling Spots in Bali

``Bali is loved for its stunning beaches and unending surf waves. But the deeper you descend below the clear water’s surface, the deeper you’ll know the island’s charm, falling in love with it even more. Here's a list of the best diving and snorkeling sites in Bali``

1. Tulamben Beach

The Tulamben Beach area hosts the USAT Liberty wreck, which sank after being torpedoed during WWII. Now the wreck sits still at 30 meters (98 feet) below the surface, a silent witness to one of the world’s greatest tragedies. And while the remains of the big ship appeal to many tourists and adventurers, only experienced divers have the privilege to explore it fully down to the bottom.  But not to worry, as beginner divers and snorkelers can easily explore the upper part of the ship, where marine life thrives, bearing colors to the rather stern wreckage scene

Location : Tulamben, Kubu, Kab.Karangasem, Bali

2. Crystal Bay

Crystal Bay is a world-famous diving and snorkeling spot loved for its surface’s tranquility that holds together a busy and vibrant underwater life as if it’s a secret. Just below the surface, hundreds of tropical fish are swimming around the stunning corals, presenting divers and snorkelers with a breathtaking sight to see. Located between the Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Penida islands, Crystal Bay is often protected from strong currents, making it an easily attained gem.

3. Blue Lagoon

Even if you are a newbie diver or snorkeler, you don’t have to miss out on Bali’s rich marine life. The Blue Lagoon, which is technically a shallow coral reef, is a perfect site for beginners, with just calm, shallow waters between snorkelers and stunning corals. Even so, the dive point, which is five minutes away from Padang Bai, also has something for adventure seekers. The spot is perfect for night dives, when rare marine species come out and roam about.

4. Lipah Bay

This tranquil black sand bay near the quiet resort town of Amed is home to a wonderfully rich reef brimming with soft and hard corals and a variety of fish. One of the easiest snorkel spots in Bali, simply walk straight off the beach and with a few kicks – you’ll be right in the middle of a beautifully preserved reef, which gently drops down to a shallow, sandy bottom.

5. Pos Dua Menjangan Island

Not your mainstream diving site, Pos Dua is a diving spot located on Menjangan Island, a small island three hours away from the Bali mainland. The marine beauty of Menjangan’s Pos Dua beams up to the surface, visible by just dipping your face slightly into the clear water. From there, you decide how far to go. The area features a magnificent abyss stretching as deep as 40 meters (131 feet), creating a majestic wall covered in corals, which only gets more and more incredible as divers go deeper and deeper.
