Comments Menjangen Island, named for the deer species that lives there, lies about 10 miles off the NW coast of Bali. It is part of a national park, and the only structures are a Hindu temple and a ramshackle resort. The coral is beat up, but we saw quite a divers array of colorful soft coral, sponges, sea squirts, etc, on the rocks and walls. We didn't like the dives there as well as at Tulamben, Gilli Trawangen or Nusa Penida, but it was quite nice.
The wall dive on the South side of the island was one of the best dives I took while on the Bali trip.
All the places we dove while on our Bali trip were crowded, although most of the other boats at Menjangen Island carried only snorkelers.
We stayed at a private villa.
