Ghost pipefish at Coral Garden, Bali

Scuba Diving in Bali, Indonesia

Reader Reviews:

Dive Site: Coral Garden

Location: Tulamben, Bali, Indonesia

Description: Reef

Depth: 5 - 12 metres (16 - 39 feet)

Visibility: 20 metres (65 feet)

Rating: ***

Just in the front of Tulamben resort in 5- 12 metres of water is a delightfully rich little patch reef, which is dominated by hard coral, including some large table and fire corals, interspersed with anemones and sponges. Though only less than 200 metres long, this reef supports a diverse fish population including snapper, angelfish, wrasse, parrotfish, black tip sharks, and millions of common reef fish. You can also see some rarities, like blue ribbon eels (the juveniles are black) frogfish and unusual scorpionfish and even the rare ghost pipefish.

Your dive here can be much deeper than 12 metres. If you follow the sandy slope down, you will find barrel sponges with many surprises, juvenile emperor, angelfish, a school of juvenile catfish, a school of razorfish and two spot lionfish. If you turn to the right toward the drop-off and swim along the slope you will arrive at a dry river bed, a grey bowl of rock and sand with no structure other than small sound ridges radiating out into the deep.
