Diving in The Tropical Lagoon
Gamat Bay in Bali is dive site located on the western side of Nusa Penida, bit more south from Toyapakeh dive spot and it is well known among local divers in Bali and Padangbai for it’s beauty but strong currents too. To be able to dive it, one must be an experienced diver as a Gamat Bay can be one of the most challenging dive sites in Nusa Penida. The bottom of Gamat Bay is mostly sand, coral patches and big nicely shape bommies. There is a profusion of colourful soft corals, with gorgonians and hard corals everywhere.
These shallow areas of Gamat Bay are lovely, full of reef fish common to Nusa Penida. If you like nudibranchs than exploring them in Gamat could easy take your whole dive. Visibility is usually superb within the bay and therefore photographers will definitely find the perfect light for their rare underwater objects.
The very rich 10-20 m part of the slope also has some big bommies that provide some protection from the current while exploring the channel waters of Ceningan. The larger fish life here is fairly diverse with some large specimens of surgeonfish, grouper and unicorn-fish. Overhangs and a couple of small caves provide resting places for White-tip reef sharks and turtles (also sometimes seen in the bay itself). Gamat Bay can be a reliable place for sightings of Mola-Mola in season.
