    That was fun to read, and, more importantly, your pics are sick. The stingray and pygmy seahorse are amazing. Thanks for posting.

    Nice reading , thanks for sharing !
    I would just add that amed is definitely not only for Macro, IMOY it has the best coral reef in all bali past the japanese shipwreck, but that's just my own opinion :wink:

    Well my illustrated opinion is that :

    Amed reefs before Lipah are just okayish...

    Bunutan reefs are fine but you must keep going out on the wall rather than staying in the sheltered part

    Japanese wreck coral reefs are really good

    For me nowhere in Bali can beat Toyapakeh, which is amazing

    Who do you dive with, Luko? I'm heading there in September prior to my visit to Tulamben. Thanks

    For Toyapakeh and all sites around Nusa Penida I always go with Gekodive from Padang Bai.

    As already said Gili Selang is subpar for photography.
    That's why I prefer Nusa Penida reefs.

    Twofish if you're located at their resort or World Diving though ask them not to put you in their big slow boat.
