Secret Bay (Macro)
At only 30 meters from the entry point, sits a wreck of a little wooden local boat of 15 meters. This spot is full of life. You will find here, cardinal fish, shrimps, harlequin pipe fish, crocodile fish. Continue the dive whilst evolving in between artificial reefs, heaps of old iron, and nets which over the years have been completely colonised by coral and fish. With a bit of luck you will spot the mandarin fish hiding in his little reef. Finish up by exploring the algea fields in the search for sea horses.
Access to the site is done by the shore not far from Gilimanuk harbour where we embark for the ferry that goes to the neighbouring island of Java. The site is 30 kilometers from Pemuteran, the closest diving base. The ride is done in approximately 30 minutes.
You will be able to see mandarin fish, frog fish, sea horses from 10 to 15 cm, Leaf scorpion fish, bee fish, 5 species of cardinal fish very popular in aquariums, along with many species of shrimps and nudibranchs.
This is an artificial reef where a number of rare sea urchins live, the hearts vary in colour from blue, to red, to pink and orange, you also have many shells and sponges. You will swim over algea fields where you won't forget to look for the many sea horses.
Secretbay is a shallow site, between 3 and 9 meters in depth depending on your location in the bay and the tides that can be prominent.
