Bali is a fascinating little island in the Indonesian archipelago. For those of you with a thirst for the exotic and unusual my advice is to miss Kuta and head north into the mountains, jungle and rice paddies. There you will find active volcanoes, high lakes, accommodation that varies from the boutique to the budget, the produce of Bali’s super talented artists and artisans, and of course wondrous food!
But the best places in Bali lie underwater inhabited by an amazing variety of marine life from the gigantic sunfish, the Mola Mola, to the tiniest shrimps and nudibranchs. Throw in the majestic World War II wreck, the ‘Liberty’ at Tulamben along with good quality dive operators and go explore! Also check out the Ultimate Guide to Scuba Diving Indonesia.
All the photos in this collection have been taken on the dive sites around Bali, Indonesia. Most of them have been taken on shore dives in Ahmed, Seraya or Tulamben. I have been taking underwater photos and working as a dive instructor for over thirteen years now.
Most of the shots have been taken on my trusty Olympus 5060 with a Sea and Sea strobe and add on wet lenses, both wide angle and macro.
