Scuba diving is one of the must-do activities you should not miss while on your vacation in Bali. The Island of Gods, as Bali is often referred to, offers some of Indonesia’s best and most beautiful diving and snorkeling locations. One of the top spots is Padangbai (or Padang Bai), a small harbor town on the central east coast of Bali.


Mostly known to young tourists for being the port for the Gilli Island’s fast boats, Pandangbai can be a real jewel for those who stop long enough to realize the small village’s hidden charm. Just over an hour from the Bali airport it is easily reached with the many taxi services or private cars available from the buzzing south.

Scuba diving and snorkeling is the reason many tourist are in no rush to leave this small bay, and they are quite right to do so. The dive sites around Padangbai are in an amazingly healthy shape. They are rich with plenty of colorful corals and a diverse marine fauna. Turtles, white tip reef sharks, stingrays and a huge variety of reef fish are the common inhabitants of these clear blue waters.
