GILI ISLANDS DIVE SITES

Did you know that 25 percent of all reefs are in Indonesia?
With over 3,500 species living in the Indonesian underwater world, we have one of the richest diversities of marine life in the Indo-Pacific region. In comparison, the Great Barrier Reef has just 1,500 species and the Red Sea has only 600 species.

Our drop-offs, plateaus and slopes reflect a good cross-section of what Indonesia has to offer. Dive in and be fascinated by turtles, white tip reef sharks, cuttlefish, moray eels, angelfishes, ghost pipefish and more. A few impressions can be found in our photo gallery. It doesn’t matter how much experience you have, we will find the ideal dive site for you.

Dive Sites Around the Gilis
Around the three Gili Islands in the North-West of Lombok (Gili Air, Gili Meno, Gili Trawangan) are more than 15 different dive spots and there are new reefs being explored all the time. Some of our spots are more suitable for advanced divers, but many are also suitable for beginners. Our experienced dive masters will always find the right spot for you.

Meno Wall
Meno Wall in the West of Gili Meno goes down to 18m. You can see a lot of small coral fish like lionfish, soldier fish, gobies, crabs and a lot of wart slugs and nudi branches coming out of hiding. It is also called “Turtle Heaven” because of the many resident hawksbill and green turtles.

Shark Point & Volker’s Golf course
Shark Point east of Gili Trawangan is a popular dive spot in the mornings. This dive site consists of different levels (24m, 20m, 18m); it starts with a slope out of hard and soft corals, the "native country" of green and hawksbill turtles. The different levels are sandy areas with small coral blocks – a wide variety of marine life starting with schools of trivially, napoleon fish over white tip reef sharks and rays in the sandy areas…. ending up with ribbon eels, leaf fishes and even mantas. “Volker’s' Golf course” is about 500m east of Shark point and starts at a depth of about 30m. It looks like the greens of a golf course and is the best site to see sharks, schools of mackerels and doctor fishes. Because of its depth and the sometimes very strong currents, it is a dive for advanced divers.

Air Wall
Air Wall in the West of Gili Air is a very beautiful wall that, due to the soft coral cover, shines yellow-orange depending on the position of the sun. The highlight of this wall is a coral block at 22m in which leaf fishes (scorpion fish) found their "home", surrounded by shrimps, pipefish, white-banded cleaner shrimps and thousands of glass fishes... Look out into the deeper parts for white tip reef sharks.

Coral Fan Garden & Basket Coral Garden
Also popular for morning dives are the two dive spots in the North of Gili Trawangan, Coral Fan Garden and Basket Coral Garden. The first few meters you will have the feeling of being in an aquarium - schools of colored fairy bass lets, fusiliers, banner fishes… and deeper, around the big coral and stone blocks, groupers, batfish, trumpet fish, hiding octopus and bearded scorpion fish. Look out to the blue: sometimes eagle rays, mantas or reef sharks can be seen.

Frog Fish Point
One of our favorite dive spots is Frog Fish Point in the East of Gili Air, famous for small things and rarities. A huge coral block from 5m-18m welcomes you. There are a lot of sandy areas, where the garden eels let off steam and coral is overgrown with anemones and their clownfish. You can find ghost pipefish, frogfish and a lot of scorpion fish. Have a manicure there by one of the many cleaner shrimps.

Manta Point
Manta Point in the rainy season, when the water is rich with plankton, this dive site in the South of Gili Trawangan gives you the best chance to see Manta rays. But even without mantas, you still have a good chance to see reef sharks and turtles. Malang Reef Underwater canyons create the landscape here with a plateau starting at 10m and dropping down to 40m. Here you can see “everything”. Mantas, blue spotted stingrays, scorpion fish, lionfish, and white tips have been encountered here as well as spiny lobsters.
