Snorkelling in Bali is perhaps the easiest way to enjoy the island’s underwater wonders. You don’t need to carry a full air tank on your back and you don’t need too much diving experience or any scuba diving certifications to be able to discover vibrant coral reefs teeming with tropical marine life. Most snorkelling spots in Bali are also readily accessible – simply bring your mask, snorkel and fins, and hit the shoreline.
The tropical waters around Bali are ideal for snorkelling. Temperatures are an average 27°C, and most sites are calm throughout the year. Furthermore, you can count on great visibility over the dry season months, particularly between April and November. You don’t need to go too far out or too deep to enjoy the beautiful underwater views, which feature anything from natural reefs to shipwrecks such as the site at Tulamben, and the largest artificial reef in Pemuteran, North Bali.
