Sea urchin at Batu Kelebit, Bali

Scuba Diving in Bali, Indonesia

Reader Reviews:

Dive Site: Batu Kelebit

Location: Tulamben, Bali, Indonesia

Description: Reef

Depth: 30 metres (100 feet)

Visibility: 20 metres (65 feet)

Rating: ****

Just around the corner from Tulamben Bay, 15 minutes by Jukung (traditional Balinese fishing boat), there are two large underwater boulders lying just offshore from a point marked by a jagged crest of lava. The dive site is dramatic and consists of steep ridges encrusted with an incredible diversity of hard corals, sea fans, fire coral and sponges with sand patches in between. At this dive site the colour of the sand differs from Tulamben Bay as does the marine life.

In fish and invertebrate life, Batu Kelebit is perhaps even richer than Tulamben Bay. Because of the steepness of the site combined with the structure of the ridges and plankton rich water, you will have more chance to see big pelagic including dog tooth tuna, mantas, schools of barracuda and you will always see white tip reef sharks. Because Batu Kelebit receives deep offshore water, the visibility will be excellent and the temperature a little cold. Current in here usually tends to northwest, however the ridges here provide excellent protection.
