The diving was not Raja Ampat by a long shot, but having said that, it was good! Kayla and I really liked Nusa Lembongan. If you have never heard of Lembongan, it is an island off the shores of Bali. It is about a half-hour speed boat ride from Sanur. Well worth the trip out there. It is like the Bali of the old days…still not heavily developed, but some good restaurants and nice villas to stay. We did two dives in the morning, and then had the afternoons off to explore the island by motorbike. We went to Manta Point every morning, but were not lucky and saw no Mantas….but the trip out there was fantastic with the towering cliffs of Nusa Penida, and the ocean breaking up against the cliffs. Spectacular. I wish I had brought my camera to get some shots of the cliffs, but the boat ride was just too rough, and my camera would have certainly been swamped with water!
This photo is off the shores of Lembongan….I could sit for hours watching the giant waves hit the rocks!!
