Blue Lagoon is considered the most famous diving site in Bali and is very popular among divers around the world.
What to Expect
The Blue Lagoon dive site is the most famous one in Bali. It is a perfect place for an easy fun dive, dive course or a night dive, macro photography, and snorkeling in Bali. It is a sandy bay with a lot of blocks of coral and fields of soft corals. During night diving it is often possible to see the famous spanish dancer. The best conditions are in the morning when the visibility is usually better. The dive is about a 5 minute boat ride from Padangbai beach.
The Blue Lagoon Beach is on the east side of Bali. But the beach is worth it - it's like a hidden paradise. The beach is clean and water is quite sheer so it's easy to see what's underneath. Another good thing is that there are not many people there.
Blue Lagoon is close to Padangbai harbor. Known as an underwater paradise, the water is warm and the marine life is abundant. You may well see clouds of ultraviolet fish with splashes of luminous orange, followed by schools of black fish with tails shaped like the head of a spanner, you might even see a fish in a leopard-print coat, and if you look carefully, you will notice cleverly camouflaged creatures hiding in the reef crevices. The coastline borders are a coral garden where you can snorkel among psychedelic fish.
Blue Lagoon Beach is a great beach for snorkeling and diving. The coral reef is right up to the shore and is very pretty. The best way is to enter on the far left side where there is a coral-less canal that leads to the snorkling site. There are two restaurants with reasonable food, showers, chairs and snorkeling gear. The beach is easily accessible. To reach Blue Lagoon Beach, head east on foot over the prominent headland at the eastern end of the main bay. Follow the signs that say Blue Lagoon. Note that wading through the water can be both frustrating and dangerous due to an abundance of coral and submerged rocks.
There is a good snorkeling opportuity in the bay, though the snorkeling at the Blue Lagoon or White Sand Beach is much better. Beware of the current and remember basic safety rules, such as never to snorkel alone and not to swim to far off in a place that you do not know.
