There are a reason on why the specific dive point in Nusa Penida is named Manta Point. It is no other than the frequent Manta encounter in this dive site.
The bottom of the dive site itself is barren. Not so many corals to be seen, as this part of Nusa Penida is facing the Indian Ocean with its strong current. However, it is the currents that make it perfect for Manta to dwell.
The Manta is available almost all year long. But, if you are here at the right time of the year, and with some luck, you won’t need to chase the Manta. It will be the Manta coming to your way, while you are hoping that you won’t get hit by sea creature 3 meters wide.
