Just off the northwest coast of Bali lies a small island with the name Menjangan island (of Pulau Menjangan in the Indonesian language). This island is situated in the protected marine reserve of the Bali Barat National Park.
The island is surrounded by hectares of beautiful coral reef gardens with a very diverse eco biology, which makes it a favorite destination for snorkelers as well as divers. The good drop-offs on Menjangan’s south side is a popular spot for local people and tourists wishing to dive for a variety of fish and coral reef exploration. There are no dangerous currents to contend with in this area. Apart from a high diversity of coral species and colorful, tropical fish there are also many kinds of sea birds and shorebirds frequenting the island.
