Gili Mimpang consists of four mini rock islands, located close to Candi Dasa village. You will dive all around the four mini islands, descending down onto a shallow slope that then forms into a beautiful coral wall. After this wall, there is another shallow slope, with rocks protecting you from the current, where you can search for macro critters. This dive site is one of the best to see mola mola and as very few divers visit the site, it’s a much more special experience.
At Gili Tepekong, you will drift along swim-throughs, reef slopes and vertical walls. One particular swim-through is 15-metres long and takes you to a stunning soft coral reef where you can find large schools of barracuda and resting sea turtles. The large rock formations create the perfect backdrop for underwater photographers. When you dive here you’re likely to encounter white-tip reef sharks, eagle rays, napoleon wrasse, trevallies, jackfish and giant tuna while making your way through canyons and caves.
Gili Biaha offers an exciting wall dive with a number of rock terraces where octopus, nudibranch, and mantis shrimp harbour. At around 12-metres depth, there is a large cave where sharks shelter from the ripping currents. An opportunity for divers to shelter is found on the South of Gili Selang. Descending down into this peaceful site, you’ll find an untouched reef perfect for underwater photographers to bring their cameras without the fear of kicking into currents.
