Gili Biaha Island: Shark Cave and Wall Dive Sites
Scuba Diving Gili Biaha Island Sites Photography Gallery
Small island, reef slope, deep walls and shark cave.
25 minutes by boat, north of Padang Bai on the east coast.
Coral Reef State:
Very good coverage of hard and soft corals.
Excellent number. Moray eels, napoleon wrasses, tunas, barracudas, turtles, octopus, cuttlefish. High chance of seeing sharks (white tip reef sharks).
Moderate to strong, normally big surge in the afternoon.
25m+ (best June-October).
Can be a difficult site around full and new moon (down currents). Near or inside the cave, divers constantly need to equalise due to the effect of the swell!
Sleeping white tips in the shark cave down at 12 meters. The view from the darkness inside the cave into the crystal-clear blue water full of swirling fish outside is a picture you'll never forget.
