Visitors enjoy life changing experiences learning about the magic of diving in crystal clear waters whilst diving with turtles and sharks in their natural environment. We will show you some mind-blowing locations in North and South Lombok that are as vibrant as ever and are waiting for you!

In September 2018 we visited South Lombok (Kuta & Belongas), Gili Islands and Sekotong area. Thanks to Scuba Froggy we started from the legendary Belongas which is famous for hammerhead sharks, mobula rays, and untouched coral reefs.

The next day we dove with Divine Divers in Gili Islands located just off mainland Lombok. This is a popular scuba diving destination known as a ‘turtle capital city’. There are dozens of dive sites in the area – most are suited to all levels of divers. With stunning underwater scenery and delicious warm temperatures – Gilis are the scuba diving and snorkeling paradise!

In the end we went to Sekotong area. Just off the southwest coast there are thirteen small islands floating in the sparkling turquoise waters. They are largely inhabited and are getting discovered by travellers looking for unspoiled, safe and enjoyable snorkelling and scuba diving. It’s time to reveal the Secret Gilis!
