LOMBOK SCUBA DIVING
Lombok has some of the best scuba diving in all of Indonesia. Lombok is the large island just west of Bali, which has some amazing coastlines and small islands of it's coast which has some awesome scuba diving.
Scuba Diving Gili Islands - The most popular area to go scuba diving in Lombok is around the Gili Islands which are 3 small islands just off the north west coast of Lombok. The 3 islands called Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno and Gili Air all have dive centres and loads of accommodation to choose from. The Gili Islands are referred to the Turtle Capital of the world as there are heaps of large turtles living around these islands. Read more about Scuba diving the Gili Islands.
Sekotong West Lombok - Sekotong is home to the southern Gili islands, another group of 15 islands just of the west coast of Lombok. The Sekotong area is home to some amazing macro marine life like a huge variety of nudibranchs, pygmy seahorses, harlequin shrimp, translucent shrimp as well as other large marine life like frog fish, lion fish, stingrays, reef sharks, turtles, reef octopus and moray eels. These islands are much less visited than the Gili islands in the north. There are only a few resorts on the islands or along the Sekotong coastline. The diving around Sekotong is some of the best diving I have done in Indonesia. I have had entire reefs all to myself and heaps of marine life to see. So please don't tell anyone about this amazing dive area!! Please!
