reef walls and is one of Bali's best diving sites.
There are a few dive sites to choose from at Menjangan with
good conditions and excellent visibility. It's also an interesting
snorkeling. Menjangan also has a wreck , known as the 'Anker'
because of its heavily encrusted anchor at the top of the
reef. Fixed moorings have been built to prevent damag, and
the island is reached by a 30 minutes boat ride from Labuan
