Things to know about Bali Diving Sanur

For divers who don’t have the time or stamina to drive to the north of Bali or over to Nusa Penida, the Sanur dive sites are ideal for quick easy dives.

However if the divers are interested in beautiful coral reefs and diverse marine life, Sanur is not the best place. It is lacking of both and ideally used for dive training more than anything else.

The reason why diving Sanur is best for courses is primarily because of the location. From our dive center in Sanur, Neptune Scuba Diving, to the nearest Sanur dive spots, we are just 5 minutes away by car.

Underwater visibility when diving in Sanur depends a lot according to the tides and weather conditions. The ocean floor is made out most predominantly out of sand, with occasional coral reef and coral bommies found randomly.

Best Sanur dive spots

Best Sanur dive spots

1. Jeladi Wilis

East Sanur’s Jeladi Willis is a lovely, calm dive site that begins at approximately 3 meters / 9 feet and slopes down to about 20 meters / 65 feet depth. It’s very important to dive here at slack tide because the current can be rather strong otherwise. Visibility at this dive spot varies from 5 to 15 meters / 16 to 49 feet.

Sanur Bay

2. Sanur Bay

Sanur Bay is the most visited I’ve site for Bali diving Sanur, so here’s where most dive centers perform their dive training for the PADI Rescue Diver and PADI Divemaster courses.

There is not much to see but the conditions allow for professional training which makes it so attractive.

Penjor Reef

3. Penjor Reef

Many would say that this dive site is as good as any other in Bali. The macro life here is in abundance and makes for a good muck dive. As all the other dive sites for Bali diving Sanur, Penjor Reef is also easily reachable from the Sanur bay.

When is the best time for Bali diving Sanur

When is the best time for Bali diving Sanur

Like all the other Bali dive sites, the best time for Bali diving Sanur is in the dry season but for dive training this matters less as diving in Sanur is not as rich in coral reef and marine life. The rainy season plays a great factor for the underwater visibility but yet again for dive training this is not a requirement.

If you are lacking the time for traveling through Bali, during the visit to Sanur the best courses that can be conducted are the PADI Rescue Diver and PADI Divemaster courses.
