Scuba Diving in Sekotong: The Macro Paradise

There are over 3500 species in the waters around Sekotong, making it one of the most bio diverse regions in the Indo-Pacific. With all sorts of colorful and fascinating hard and soft corals, amazing creatures such as bamboo sharks, Nemos and cuttlefish, along with the rare macro stuff such as frogfish, ghostpipefish and pygmy seahorse.

During your scuba dives in Sekotong you will notice how complete and pristine the reefs are in the South West of Lombok around the untold dive sites discovered only a few years ago (and some by DSM DIVE team).

In this special trip to Sekotong, DSM DIVE brings you to an area with many secluded islands - the perfect place to relax. The crystal clear waters full of fish are just waiting for you to inspect them through your mask.

Dive with DSM DIVE in Sekotong and explore scuba diving on the divesites between the coast of Sekotong, Gili Gede, Gili Nanggu and Gili Layar — great for all levels and great examples of reefs in tip-top condition.

Sekotong is considered a macro-divers paradise. This does not necessarily mean poor visibility as with so many critter-havens. Here rarities such as frogfish, blue-ringed octopus and incredible flamboyant nudibranchs are the star attractions. Harlequin ghostpipefish, sea moths and mantis shrimp make up the supporting cast while the bamboo shark provides the spectacular interest.

Most dives here are nice and gentle in warm, relatively shallow water. They are perfect for the less experienced, as well as yielding sufficient rewards for those with plenty of dives under their weight belt.
