ABOUT GILI MIMPANG

Edit

There is little doubt that Bali is one of the most beautiful islands in the world. Located in Indonesia, tourists from all over the world visit this wondrous island every year, exploring its beauty both above and below the ocean surface.

For divers, one of the most impressive places in Bali to dive is Gili Mimpang which attracts thousands of divers each year to this unique location. The warm, inviting waters combined with the myriad of marine life make Gili Mimpang one of the prime locations for experienced scuba divers.
Located near Amuk Bay where the seafloor has not quite dropped off into much deeper Lombok Strait, Gili Mimpang is often called Batu Tiga or “Three Rocks” because from the surface it does appear as three separate rock structures. The strong currents of that area make it unsuitable for diving sometimes.

The Marine Life of Gili Mimpang:
The small caves and reefs of soft coral make Gili Mimpang one of the best places to see various fish that lives around Bali. There is the beautiful Ocean Sun Fish or Mola Mola which can be found during certain times of the year. Glass fish are also abundant right before the floor of the ocean drops off into the depths. You can also find banner fish, white tipped reef sharks, prionurus fish, and even the large whale sharks can be found from time to time. Bumpheads and eagle rays can also be seen in the area and you can find some spectacular nuidbranchs as well. There are also angelfish, crimson basslets and schools of yellowfish and many more...

Diving Requirement & Experience Level:
While the visibility is quite good and the diving location easy to reach at Gili Mimpang, the strong currents and jagged rocks makes this a location for the experienced to advanced diver. Novice and beginning divers should not try to dive in this area because of the turbulence of the currents.
During Mola Mola season, Gili Mimpang becomes quite the popular place to dive, so you may want to consider coming in the off-season if you want more tranquility. However, the sight of this Mola Mola is certainly enough to make it worth the visit.
