Level – Beginner

The name itself says it all, Manta point is graced by schooling Manta Rays (Manta Alfredi) all year round. There are also many blue spotted stingrays, and colorful hard and soft coral.

Location: This dive site lies off the Southern tip of Nusa Penida island.

Tips: Beginner divers may sometimes feel unnerved as one is greeted by a pendulum of surges upon entry, this is however nothing to worry about.

As you begin your descent to about 4-5 meters, there will be a very good chance of being greeted by graceful black and white mantas. They hang around the cleaning station, and to feed on the cool nutrient rich waters.

Facts: The site is covered in hard and soft coral, but the current swept coast keeps the coral growth to a certain height only. This is a shallow dive, with a maximum depth of 15 meters.
