Gili Mimpang

Gili Mimpang is located not far from Amuk Bay (East of Bali) and is a single island exposed to current coming from the North, making it a site exclusively for certified and experienced divers.

At the beginning of the dive, you descend onto a plateau with a large coral bommie where marine life abounds, and little by little you make our way along the reef as it begins to slope and eventually turns into a vertical wall.  If conditions allow, you continue along the wall, and at a shallower depth, make your way around the last of the three islets in order to arrive back to where you began your dive. The cold currents here (18-20⁰ C) contribute to keeping the reef in excellent health, and also make it possible to encounter pelagics such as reef sharks, barracuda, stingrays, and even Mola Mola (sunfish), particularly from July to October.

Thanks to the current, the visibility is often very good.  However, Mimpang is a dive site where conditions can change very quickly and you should wait for favorable conditions before jumping in and diving on this site.
