Nusa Penida Snorkelling [Private Tour]
If you are planning on visiting an island, chances are you want to go for a swim at least a couple of times. Nusa Penida has several beautiful, sandy beaches perfect for swimming, snorkelling, and sunbathing. Each one is more picturesque, but don’t lose your head! No matter how friendly the water looks, beware of currents and waves that can pull you in.
With pristine coral reefs and rich marine life, Nusa Penida snorkelling places are considered to have some of the world’s most diverse underwater ecosystems. They are part of the Coral Triangle and enjoy having fresh, plankton-rich water around delivered by the deep, strong currents of the Indo-Pacific Throughflow.
Nusa Penida snorkelling spots do not include too many options for shore snorkelling. Still, Crystal Bay is one of the few sandy beaches where snorkelers at all levels can enjoy exploring beautiful coral reefs, thanks to the shallow water and easy shore access. We are sure that snorkelling in Crystal Bay will amaze you with its clear water and lively corals. Sometimes even turtles can be seen here.
Snorkel in the left corner of the bay and arrive as early as possible. The water is the calmest in the morning, but the waves and currents might get intense during the day, and the bay gets crowded with boats.
As the name shows, the water is crystal clear, meaning you can expect 30 meters of visibility! A dream for underwater photographers, so it brings a waterproof camera!
Very few tourists visit this secluded little beach due to the difficult access. A dirt track leads down to Gamat Bay, but the last part is a narrow, very steep path where you need to climb, so it is manageable only wearing proper sports shoes.
It is one of the best Nusa Penida snorkelling spots with crystal clear water and thousands of fish that play hide and seek among the vibrant corals. A must-visit place when on the island! Therefore we recommend arriving here by boat.
Swimming with manta rays is a bucket list experience, and Nusa Penida is the perfect place for this unique encounter! Thanks to the rich currents around Nusa Penida, these majestic filter feeder creatures are present all year round.
They usually gather in a shallow bay called Manta Bay, where you can have a chance to snorkel with these peaceful creatures.
Toyapakeh Wall Point
Besides being a superb dive spot, the Toyapakeh Wall Point is one of the most beautiful Nusa Penida snorkelling places too! The wide variety of fish and extensive coral colonies make the Toyapakeh Wall Point snorkeller’s favourite reef. Large pelagic species like Mola Mola fish are regular visitors here.
Out of Bali snorkelling places, Nusa Penida is considered the top in the variety of species and coral reef conditions. As mentioned above, the Nusa Islands are in the area of the Indo-Pacific Throughflow, which means the currents are powerful around Nusa Penida. These nutrient-rich currents explain why marine life is so diverse.
Nusa Penida’s climate is very similar to mainland Bali’s weather, so to answer the best time to visit Nusa Penida is to check out Bali’s climate chart. The Nusa Islands get less rain than Bali. You have the highest chance for sunny and dry weather from May through mid-November. This period is perfect if you want to explore both the land attractions and Nusa Penida snorkelling spots.
