Snorkeling and Scuba Diving at Kubu Point

At Kubu Point there are two different reefs accessible from the shore. After a 20m swim from the shore the reefs run from a depth of 5-40m. The profile is a black sand slope where you can find many garden eels. There are both soft and hard corals in great diversity, including many sea fans. Fish life here includes barracuda, pygmy seahorses, sharks and some large octopus. Visibility at Kubu is normally excellent, even when it has been wavy with low visibility at Tulamben. From southern Bali (Kuta, Nusa Dua, Sanur, Denpasar) drive east via Gianyar town, Semarapura and Amlapura. From Amlapura head north to Culik. Tulamben is about 20 minutes from Culik. From Tulamben keep heading northwest. After approximately 10 minutes there is a junction, the road to the right will bring you to the beach after about 1km.

Lots of critters, great photo site. Entry has become easier since the bad storms in Feb 2011 which eroded the shore significantly. Relax Bali resort next door provides a nice restaurant to relax at between dives. Saw nice pygmy seahorses and turtles during June, July and August.

I have only been diving on this site once and we arrived by jukung, though it appears easy to do from shore. We were in a hurry to descend to 100 feet, but passed up lots of great stuff from 30-70 that I would like to take another look at. My oldest son found 6 pygym seahorses, one pregnant, on one fan and my youngest son found the most beautiful red and black ornate ghost pipefish I had yet seen at the bottom of the wall. We had a tremendous time looking for small stuff. The way we entered was through a typical coral garden but we finally found a nice wall a bit farther west (left) with schools of fish and an excellent assortment of chromodoris nudibranchs. Lionfish were under every major barrel sponge at first, then they yielded to monster size spotted morays.
