Choose the right dive shop:

Speaking of dive shops, it’s important to choose one that you feel comfortable with. Do your research, read reviews, and don’t be afraid to ask questions. You want to make sure you’re in good hands when you’re underwater.

Pack the essentials:

You don’t need to bring your whole closet, but there are a few things you’ll want to have with you on your dive. Sunscreen, a hat, a towel, and a change of clothes are all must-haves.

Don't be afraid to ask for help:

Diving can be intimidating, especially if you’re new to it. But don’t be afraid to ask your dive instructor for help or clarification. They’re there to make sure you have a safe and enjoyable experience.

Crystal Bay:

This site is perfect for beginners, with calm waters and plenty of marine life to discover. Keep your eyes peeled for turtles, octopuses, and colorful reef fish.


If you’re looking for a bit more of a challenge (but still suitable for beginners), Toyapakeh offers some stronger currents and deeper depths. But don’t worry, you’ll still see plenty of amazing marine life, including mantas and reef sharks.

SD Point:

This site is known for its gentle sloping reef, making it a great spot for practicing your diving skills. You’ll also get to see a variety of coral and fish species, including parrotfish and butterflyfish.


For something a little different, check out Mangrove. As the name suggests, this site is located in a mangrove forest, offering a unique and stunning underwater landscape. You’ll see plenty of critters hiding among the roots and branches.

Tips for a Safe and Exciting Nusa Penida Diving Adventure

Are you ready to take the plunge and explore the underwater world of Nusa Penida? Before you strap on your fins and dive in, let’s make sure you’re fully prepared for a safe and exciting adventure. Here are some tips to help you maximize your Nusa Penida diving experience:

  1. Don’t forget your underwater selfie stick – because if you don’t post a picture of yourself diving on Instagram, did it even happen?
  2. Remember to breathe – it’s kind of important for staying alive, you know?
  3. If you see a shark, don’t panic – they’re just misunderstood creatures who want to be friends. Or eat you. It’s hard to tell.
  4. Bring plenty of sunscreen – you don’t want to end up looking like a lobster on your vacation. Unless you’re into that kind of thing.
  5. Stay hydrated – diving can be thirsty work. Plus, it gives you an excuse to drink more margaritas.
  6. Keep an eye out for Nemo – he’s out there somewhere, waiting to be found.
  7. Listen to your dive instructor – they know what they’re doing (usually).
  8. Don’t touch anything – unless you want to end up in a world of pain. Seriously, some of those fish are poisonous.
  9. Have fun! – After all, isn’t that what diving is all about? That, and finding cool stuff to post on social media.

Exploring Nusa Penida's World-Renowned Manta Point

This stunning underwater playground is home to some of the most graceful and majestic creatures in the ocean – the manta rays. With their massive wingspans and friendly personalities, these gentle giants are the perfect diving partners for anyone looking to explore the beauty of the sea.

So, what do you need to know before you set out to explore Manta Point? First and foremost, be prepared for some serious underwater acrobatics. The mantas at Manta Point are known for their playful and acrobatic displays, and you’ll be treated to a show like no other as they flip and twirl all around you.

Of course, you’ll also want to make sure you’re fully prepared for your adventure. That means packing your sunscreen and underwater camera, as well as any other diving gear you might need. And don’t forget to listen to your guide – they know the best spots to find the mantas, and will keep you safe during your adventure.

As you explore Manta Point, be sure to keep your distance from these majestic creatures. Even though they’re friendly and curious, they’re still wild animals, so it’s important to give them plenty of space. And if you’re lucky enough to find yourself in the middle of a manta ray dance party, don’t be afraid to shimmy along with them – they love a good dance partner!

Of course, the most important thing is to have fun. Exploring Manta Point is an incredible experience, and the mantas are excited to meet you. So, take a deep breath, relax, and enjoy the ride. With a little bit of preparation and a whole lot of enthusiasm, you’re sure to have an unforgettable adventure at Nusa Penida’s world-renowned Manta Point.
