Menjangan Island in North Bali

Popular Diving Island in Bali

Menjangan Island is part of the West Bali National Park. You can cross over to this small island by boat from the port of Labuhan Lalang near Pemuteran Beach in North Bali. The island spans approximately 3,800Ha, with savannahs home to the rare Javan rusa deer, locally known as ‘menjangan’ (Cervus timorensis) and which gave the island its name. Down at the coastline, calm waters and coral gardens teeming with marine life offer diving and snorkelling with excellent visibility year round.

Visiting Menjangan Island requires the accompaniment of a park guide and permit, which you can arrange with most tour operators or hotels in the Pemuteran Beach area, or obtained at the park office in Labuhan Lalang (IDR 20,000 or USD 1.50 per person; guide fees range from IDR 350,000 or USD 26). Besides pristine nature, you can also admire the island’s collection of shrines, including Segara Giri Dharma Kencana Temple with its towering seaward-facing Ganesh statue on its hilly north-eastern shore. It’s roughly a three-hour drive north from Kuta, but worth the journey for a real taste of Balinese nature.
