Diving in Bali with Macro Life
The position of the reef in Secret bay dive site which is lying just outside the mouth of the bay creates a channel through which waters are largely swept. This is mainly the reason what Secret Bay spot basically acts as a massive underwater nursery for many larval fish and other critters. Because of strong tidal currents fish and invertebrates here are extremely healthy, colourful and well-fed but also that the water can be quite cold and sometimes the temperature is only around 20-25°C. All these characteristic make Secret Bay an extremely appealing dive site for macro photographers even it is more than 3 hours drive from Padangbai.
The bay is only about two kilometres wide and very shallow 3-12m. It contains two small islands, and has even some areas of mangrove. Secret Bay is of shore diving. The bottom is mostly black and grey volcanic sand with almost no coral, although there is some sea grass and often a great deal of debris to provide shelter and hiding places for the multitude of macro critters found here. Due to its shallowness and lack of water movement, too much fin movement or less than perfect buoyancy control will stir up the bottom, leaving you with low visibility.
