If you are looking for Mola Mola then you should stay Sanur/Kuta, Padang Bai or Nusa Lembongan. Other than that Mejangan Island in the northwest do offer a good mixture between macro and Wide angle. Eel Garden is so far my best dive in Bali, I have never seen so many pygmy seahorse in a single dive before.
Hi everyone myself and two other friends are off to Bali in august and we are considering going in search of the sunfish. We are staying 8 days in Tulamben and then have around another week that we have no plans for. If any Bali regulars could give us some advise as to were to go for the second part of our trip that would be great.
Thanks Matt Shepherd

In high season i have seen as many as 35 boats at crystal bay by 10am... not good for photography unless you like shooting bubbles

It would be great if it were possible to limit the number of boats and divers through a licensing or lottery system, but that's probably just a fantasy. If you've never seen molas before, then I can well understand the draw - they are magnificent animals. But we're approaching the point where one has to think about the likely effects of one's participation in this phenomenon.

We're staying at Lembongan next month, planning on doing some dives there too. Don't go chasing all the sunfish away for us mate?
If you've got a whole week, why don't you jump on a domestic flight and go stay with Mike at NAD Lembeh?
