Rich underwater world
The underwater world in Bali offers a great variety of species. Located in the southwestern part of the coral triangle, the richness of the coral reefs is unique. More than 3.500 species have been discovered here. The Indonesian current is in charge of transporting plankton to the reefs around Bali. This very important current transports the water from the Pacific Ocean, via Java and Banda Sea, to the Indian Ocean. This optimal geographic situation guarantees the great diversity of fish, coral, and critters; including nudibranchs, rhinopias, ghost pipe fish, cowries, boxer crabs, mimic octopus, wonderpus and many more.
The alamBatu house reef, situated directly off the resort, is a wonderful and mostly untouched reef of over 800 meters. The coral diversity varies from soft corals, black corals, table corals and gorgonians up to 2 meters in diameter. The corals shelter a fantastic underwater world with many schools of fish (including juvenile barracudas, snappers), reef sharks, sea horses, harlequin shrimps and other critters.
With a bit of luck you can also see dolphins, pilot whales and ocean sunfish passing by.
Snorkeling is also available and is a good alternative to scuba diving. The top of the reef offers you to see many different sea creatures.
Night dives and fluo-diving are also offered. Equipped with a blue light and a special filter for your mask, the fluorescent animals glow in different colors; providing a glowing underwater experience that you will love.
