Lipah Bay and Japanese Shipwreck in Bali

Popular Dive Site in Amed - East Bali

Lipah Bay is a popular dive site in Amed, East Bali. A 20-meter-long wreck of a Japanese freighter that lies in very shallow water is the site’s main attraction. The proximity and accessibility of the wreck from the shore makes it a relatively easy dive – and you can also snorkel to it right from the beach. The calm waters of the bay and the shallow position of the wreck, at around only 6 to 12 meters in depth, ensures great visibility around any time of the year. The beach itself features coarse, black sand strewn with pebbles with the local fishermen’s outriggers parked in a neat row nearby.

Diving or Snorkelling the Lipah Bay Japanese Shipwreck

The Japanese shipwreck in Lipah Bay is quite a small wreck, but it’s overgrown with corals in places, such as around the ship’s propeller, with large gorgonian fans and sponges that have become playgrounds for schools of small reef fish, nudibranchs and varieties of other sea critters that macro photographers will love. If you’re keen, you might also catch a glimpse of the elusive pygmy seahorse here. Divers often refer to Lipah Bay by some of its other names, such as ‘Lipah Beach’, ‘Banyuning Beach’, after the coastal hamlet nearby, and ‘Pondok Vienna Beach’, after the beachfront hotel that overlooks the bay.
