MENJANGAN (Deer) ISLAND is on the northwest corner of Bali, and as part of the West Bali National Park, falls under jurisdicion of the Bali National Park Services.

From first becoming renowned for its diving around 1978 Menjangan Island has maintained a well earnd reputation as being a world class dive location. Two events, a crown of thorn starfish invasion in 1997, and coral bleaching due to El Nino in 1998, decreased the overall appeal of this site, at least now is coming back to life thanks to Marine parks Enforcements .

Menjangan Island walls can be dived from the top in less than 10 meters of water down to depths exceeding 40 meters. Expect to see gorgonians, soft and hard corals, and lots of small to medium size creatures. I saw my first and only comet fish here. Crown trigger fish can are also seen here on a regular basis. Big ocean fish that like strong flowing, cold waters are not common here as the island is protected from such events.

Although the best diving season in Menjangan island is from about April to November, you can dive here most anytime of the year, choosing sites on the north or south of the island depending on the direction of the wind.

The visibility at Menjangan Island can at times be amazing, probably the best in Bali, especially in October and November with horizontal visibility often exceeding 50 meters.

Current here is very rare, even 1 knot of current is unusual around the island.
The most recommended dive sites on the island are

  • the Anker Wreck (40+ meters),

  • Eel Garden

  • Pos II.
