Manta Bay

Nusa Penida, Bali

Biggest chance to see mantas is at the Manta Bay at the coast line of Nusa Penida. You can take tours every morning from many different locations. We took a morning snorkeling tour from Nusa Lembongan with 4 different snorkeling locations. First at Manta Bay to see Manta rays, afterwards Crystal Bay and other spots at the coast line of Nusa Penida.
