relaxed diving and big macro fun.
The southern Gili islands -
Sekotong, a tropical little place with a only a few dive resorts and not much topside goings-on apart from snorkeling, swimming and scuba diving. Our Lombok island dive resorts are quite perfect for couples and families who just want to relax and enjoy the southern Gilis.
Our South Lombok dive sites reflect a good cross-section of what Indonesia has to offer, and the southern Gilis offer even the widely traveled and experienced diver a surprising and breathtaking experience. Diving the south Gili islands offers colorful, relaxed reef diving for all levels of training, and fun diving for families and beginners.
If you don't dive South Lombok -
you haven't seen Indonesia!
challenging diving, big rewards.
Scuba diving Belongas Bay, and diving "The Magnet", is where misconceptions about diving South Lombok come from. Diving the "Magnet and "Cathedral" are truly challenging Lombok dive sites and for the more experienced diver. Nevertheless, diving Belongas Bay also holds world-class dive sites for less experienced divers.
Scuba diving Belongas Bay offers exciting, challenging "adrenalin dives" at the dive sites " The Magnet" and "The Cathedral". The seasonable sighting of schooling barracudas, tunas, and other pelagic life is fairly regular, and apart from the mobula- and eagle ray season during August and September, hammerheads have the tendency to school at the Magnet June till November.
Experienced divers only!
Dive Belongas Bay - for the adventurous soul
Belongas Bay - exciting dives in tropical atmosphere
Scuba diving Belongas Bay, or Blongas Bay, offers exciting, challenging "adrenalin dives" at the dive sites "The Magnet" and "The Cathedral". The seasonable sighting of schooling barracudas, tunas, and other pelagic life is fairly regular, and apart from the mobula- and eagle ray season during August and September, hammerheads have the tendency to school around the Magnet end June until early November.
"The Magnet" is famous for its hammerhead shark sightings, which features both Scalloped Hammerhead sharks and the Great Hammerhead sharks. According to experts, "The Magnet" is the one of the only three places in the world where you can see both kinds of hammerhead sharks (the other being the Philippines and Costa Rica).
In Belongas Bay (Blongas) you'll find an unspoiled underwater paradise with pristine reefs, an intact environment, and impressive diving with huge marine diversity!
Belongas Bay - challenging diving with big rewards!
At "The Magnet" and "The Cathedral" we oftentimes experience strong currents and rough seas, therefore please note the minimum Prerequisites for diving the "Magnet" and the "Cathedral" are a advanced certification as well as from May until end October 100 logged dives (from November until end April 50 logged dives).
We recommend bringing a 5mm wetsuit. The temperature is around 26C - 28C, but on "good hammerhead days" it can very well drop to 22C-25C.
We do not guarantee that any particular dive site will be accessible at all times!
