Bali is located in between Java and Nusa Tenggara in Indonesia. Being in the region where the Pacific Ocean meets the Indian Ocean, Bali basically lies right in the center of the world’s richest marine biogeographical region. With quite a few beautiful dive sites around Bali, divers are sure to enjoy the company of the rich marine biodiversity found there including over eighty genera of coral and almost twenty five hundred species of fish!
The best period for Bali would be during April to December, but visiting after June will have a higher likelihood of finding sunfish, sharks and other pelagic fish. The rest of the year from December to March is the monsoon period in Bali and will reduce the visibility in general.

Padang Bai Beach Resort
About Padang Bai
Padang Bai is a small natural harbour on the East coast of Bali, facing the small islands of Nusa Penida and Nusa Lembongen. The sea between the islands is deep (up to 300 metres) while the coasts are fringed with coral reefs in extremely good health. This combination of conditions makes for a large number of varied dive sites: within 40 minutes by boat from our beachfront dive shop there are more than 25 dive sites, offering every kind of dive experience. We have deep dives and drifts, walls and reefs, wrecks, caves and muck dives. We also have 5 dive sites within a 10 minute boat ride from our front door.
About Padang Bai Beach Resort
During your Bali Dive Trip, you will stay at Padang Bai Beach Resort. The accommodation is entirely modern and very comfortable. With just 24 rooms, Padang Bai Beach Resort combines a relaxed and friendly atmosphere with maximum comfort. You can choose from individual bungalows for a secluded garden retreat, or balconied rooms with stunning views over the sea to the island of Nusa Penida. All offer air conditioning, TV, DVD and fully modern bathrooms, yet at the same time have a distinctively Balinese grace and airiness. Try a meal in our newly refurbished open air Buddha restaurant and bar. The resort is set right on the beach and our dive boat departs daily from the door step. No long drives from the hotels in Sanur or Kuta, and no tiring walks with your equipment. The village itself retains a quiet charm that attracts many of Bali’s more knowledgeable residents and visitors.
