Shark Point east of Gili Trawangan is a popular dive spot in the mornings. This dive site consists of different levels (24m, 20m, 18m); it starts with a slope out of hard and soft corals, the "native country" of green and hawksbill turtles. The different levels are sandy areas with small coral blocks - the variety is very big starting with schools of trevally, napoleon fish over white tip reef sharks and rays in the sandy areas... ending up with ribbon eels, leaf fishes and even mantas. "Volkers' Golf course" is about 500m east of Shark point and starts at a depth of about 30m. It looks green like on a golf course and is the best site, to see sharks, schools of mackerels and doctor fishes. Because of its depth and the sometimes very strong currents, it is a dive for advanced divers. Easy... just got you a bike from your bungalow to your dive shop, 10min boat trip… enjoy!!!

A variety of small invertebrates and fish, including sharks and giant trevally, are visible while snorkeling the rocky slopes. Deeper diving to 40m reveals many coral trout, large groupers, schools of giant trevally, and massive dogtooth tuna. Fantastic diving and snorkeling. Ideal entry is approximately 100m south of the bay's western point. Once you have rounded the point, continue diving westwards. The shallow reef at the end of the dive is an excellent coral garden. Strong currents and sometimes downcurrents can be experienced on the point. Recommended time to dive is during slack-tide.
Coral Fan

#15 - Coral Fan

Indonesia, Lombok, Northern Islands

beginner

This site got its name for its abundance of large, white-polyped Gorgonian fan-coral with bright-red skeletons. They grow on the big coral bommies of this sites shallow reeftop. You'll find other types of hard coral spread along the bottom at 5 to 7 meters, surrounded by lots of reef and tropical fish. Small Copper Sweepers especially like to swim here. The shallow corals and colorful fish life makes Coral Fan a good choice for snorkeling in the Gilis. As diver you often see Titan Triggerfish and Clown Triggerfish on this site's outside wall, which drops from 8 to 30 meters. The strong current that feeds the wall's healthy coral and fans make drift dives the order of the day. The slopes have varied fish life, including a good selection of Scorpionfish, so be careful where you put your hands.

Manta Point

#23 - Manta Point

Indonesia, Lombok, Northern Islands

beginner

Manta Point is generally an easy dive site, sometimes the current gives you a fine drift. The best season to see Mantas, is from March to May, though February and June also offer good possibilities to see them. Mantas can be seen sporadically year-round. 17 Mantas have been seen here at one time. The nutrients carried into the water by runoff from land, make the mantas more active. So, the lower visibility that divers may encounter during the rainy months of November and December can actually be a blessing in disguise. Even if you don't see mantas, this is a rewarding site for divers of all abilities. You'll see lobster and moray eels in the rocky parts of the reef. Look also for cuttlefish hovering over the corals, flashing their brilliant colors. The cuttlefish's ability to camouflage itself is incredible. It is even able to mimic the reddish algae found along the bottom here. You can also see the sleeping white tip reef sharks around the bommie coral. It's around 17 meters deep. This is the best place to see the Acropora reef

Near Gili Lawang is the drop-off area Salut Drop-off. This is a dive site from 4 until 40 meters deep. There is a lot of hard and soft coral, like brancish and tabulate coral, in this area, of which 85% is intact. Also you can see a lot of Acropora coral. On the bottom you can see a lot of shrimps and crabs, because around the island is a lot of mangrove. It's a good place to do a night dive. At Salut Drop-off you can find different kinds of sponge. The current can be quite strong. But you can also see a lot of big fish like Barracuda, Parrot fist and White-Tip Shark. We often survey this area for marine monitoring. Go by boat from Gili Lawang and sail to the east until you can see the baeches of Lombok island between Gili Lawang and Gili Sulat. Maybe you have to sail a bit to the south also.
