Bali Dive Sites and Scuba Diving Locations

Scuba Diving in Bali is an amazing and diverse underwater adventure.  There are world class ship wrecks, reefs that are full of life, excellent muck diving for the tiny and strange, and of course Mola Molas, sharks, and Manta Rays.  Basing yourself in Padang Bai puts you right in the middle of all the best sites.
