    Underwater Spots Nusa Penida Bali

    Underwater spots Nusa Penida for Bali Traveling trip.One of 10 amazing Bali's underwater spots as Bali spectacular underwater spots in this world.Watch huge manta rays get cleaned Manta Point, Nusa Penida.Off the rugged coast of Nusa Penida lies Manta Point, the only place in Bali where huge reef manta rays are sighted on a regular basis.These gentle giants (known for being curious and friendly around humans) emerge from the deep to have their skin plucked of parasites, by a resident army of cleaner fish. Imagine the car wash scene in ‘Shark Tale’, only with giant rays instead of sharks!

    The cleaner fish are stationed on a coral mound a few metres below the surface. If the mantas are in the mood for a clean, they will circle this mound repeatedly until the cleaner fishes’ work is done.Being so close to the surface, snorkelers can easily witness this fascinating behaviour up-close – but please respect the wildlife and never chase or touch mantas. This can scare them off and ruin the experience for everyone.There’s not much else to see here, and if you’re unlucky, Manta Point can be a real bore, but if the mantas are around (which is most of the time, fortunately!) – swimming so close to these enormous, intelligent creatures is one of the most amazing human-animal interactions you are ever likely to experience.And you can also check the best one bali destination for traveling like Peaceful of Ubud Bali as amazing destination in Bali.
