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.

Lombok Dive Season, Swell- and Wind Forecast
As our dive shops are located in unique regions of South Lombok, we want to support your travel planning with the following information. Please feel free to contact us for up to date "at the moment" info at any time!
Since the swell and winds are a big influence on the diving conditions at some of our regions here you can check the swell charts for Belongas/Kuta and Sekotong/Desert Point. In general one can say, with a swell 6 ft and smaller, or winds not exceeding 12 mph, the conditions can be quite ok, but a little less is certainly better.
