Is the diving seasonal on Nusa Lembongan & when is the best time to visit?
The amazing waters of Nusa Lembongan & Nusa Penida offer year round diving, with great visibility, which is often in excess of 20m. Water temperatures are generally between 26–29’C, the exception being between July – September, when slightly cooler waters (sometimes as low as 20’C) bring in the Mola Mola! We can usually see manta rays all year at our two main sites. The rainy season starts around November and runs until March, but rainfall is significantly lower on Nusa Lembongan than in Bali, so even in the wet season, we have clear sunny days, with perfect diving conditions!
What level of experience do I need to have to dive the dive sites around Nusa Lembongan & Nusa Penida?
