The clear waters around the Indonesian island of Bali offer great visibility to see the colourful corals and a huge variety of fish.

Dutch woman Els van der Eijnden took the footage below. It will give you a good impression of what you can expect: mighty mantra rays, eagle rays, sea turtles and many fish. Pay special attention the the creature at the end of the video: a swimming crinoid…

You can also take a dive to the wreckage of the USS Liberty. This American naval ship was torpedoed by the Japanese in 1942, and is now a bright collection of coral, fish and other sea life.

The wreckage is only 50 metres from the beach and is particularly easy to spot with sunny weather. You can even still recognise the ornaments on the ship.

Some of the best spots are:

Menjangan Island (especially the Marine National park)
Tulamben (in the north-east)
Amed (in the north-east)
Candi Dasa (in the east)
Padang Bai (in the east)
Nusa Penida, Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Ceningan (east)
