Padang Bai Resort. Bali. Indonesia

Padang Bai is the harbor where the boats from Lombok take off, but is also a lovely, laid back fishing village with a few losmens for accommodation. A short walk over the headland to the north will take you to an intimate white sand beach.

Padangbai is a small town in eastern Bali, Indonesia near Candidasa. It serves as a ferry port for travel to Lombok, The Gilis and other of the Lesser Sunda Islands. It is also a lovely beach town that is popular with those who prefer a small town atmosphere over the large scale beach party that is Kuta.

Besides the beach near the ferry terminal there is a beach just to the north known locally as the Blue Lagoon and the especially nice Secret Beach just to the south of town. Blue Lagoon has two family owned warungs that will be glad to prepare a meal and serve beer.

Scuba diving in Padang Bai - Bali starts at our house reef, the Blue Lagoon, which is only a few minutes away from our Dive Center. The 5 different dive sites are easily accessed by local traditional outrigger boats called "Jukung". Between dives we return to the Dive Center for the surface interval.

The dive sites of Padang Bai offer a great variety. From the novice diver to the diving professional, there is something for every experience level. Padang Bai is a haven for UW photography with a myriad of species that will pose for a portrait (Morray Eels, Leafy Scorpionfish, Anglerfish, Stonefish, Indian Walkman...)
