Bali is an island in the Malay Archipelago (Malay: Kepulauan Melayu), which is a part of the Lesser Sunda Islands (Indonesian: Kepalauan Nusa Tenggara) and is a part of Indonesia.
In the west, Bali is washed by the strait with the same name which separates it from Java Island; in the east Bali is washed by the Lombok Strait (Indonesian: Selat Lombok), which separates it from Lombok Island (Indonesian: Lombok). From the south Bali borders on the waters of the Indian Ocean, and on the north — with the Bali Sea.
Dives along the coastline are organized all year round. Near the village of Tulamben it is worth seeing Usat Liberty, a 120-meter-long bulk carrier, sunk during World War II; Coral Garden reef is also worth seeing.
Wobbegong shark and sunfish are recognized as the calling card of Bali.
Equatorial climate makes diving on Bali year round. There are no rapid changes of temperature and the day length is practically the same, i.e.12 hours. The rainy season is from December to January, and from April to October it is dry and hot. The most comfortable months are July and August. The water in the ocean warms up to +27 ˚С, and the average air temperature is +28 ˚С.
Not far from Amed, in Lipah Bay, at a depth of 15-20 meters, there are wrecks of a Japanese ship, and near Padang Bai Harbor there is a coral reef with snow-white sand in a blue lagoon, just like in the Bounty chocolate advertising.
In the area of Chandidas, near Тepekong Island, you can see coral gardens and a rock with a hole going through it.
