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 resort is quite perfect for couples and families who just want to relax and enjoy the southern Gilis.
Our Lombok dive sites reflect a good cross-section of what Indonesia has to offer, and Sekotong offers even the widely traveled and experienced diver a surprising and breathtaking experience. Diving Sekotong offers colorful, relaxed reef diving for all levels of training, and fun diving for families and beginners.
If you don't dive 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!

Stairs to Medang
Terracing down from 14m to about 35m you will experience a fascinating underwater landscape. Here you can experience the Indo-Pacific at its best. We've seen mantas, different species of sharks and plenty of lively reef fish in all colors and sizes. On top of the plateau it's not uncommon to run into lobsters and turtles.
After reaching around 16 meters on the slowly descending plateau we find landslide similar terrain. As we dive along this breakage, we are accompanied by emperor fish, big groupers and surgeon fish. The dive leads into a deeply gorging valley lined by heavy, massive coral formations. Once in the valley we find white tip reef sharks, schooling mackerel, schooling sweet lips, and an abundance of lively fish.
