Many divers from all over the world dream of diving Blue Corner. Because it is a fantastic diving spot in Bali with a fair probability of seeing a Mola Mola. The Blue Corner diving site is located at the southernmost tip of Nusa Lembongan, a long, thin island located immediately north of Nusa Penida. Local surfers can sometimes be seen enjoying their rides at the Lembongan surf spot.
DIVING IN BLUE CORNER SITE IN NUSA PENIDA
We’ll require around 15 minutes of navigation from Toyapakeh to reach Nusa Lembongan and sail through the mangrove jungle. We’re a little further behind the pack than normal. Depending on the current, there are several routes to dive Blue Corner. The key route is to follow the wall, which provides us with a point of reference.
Some marble beams can already be seen aiming at the same target as us. That target is a big angled rock at the dive site’s entrance, the corner.
Then we come to a magnificent wall alive with moray eels and large lobsters, with many bumps. Various nudibranch species, such as chromodoris, flabellina, and nembrotha, are similarly swamped by such bumps. With a little luck, magnificent gigantic sea fans will allow you to see pygmy seahorses.
IN THE BLUE AT BLUE CORNER
We’re still looking towards the blue. We’re also on the lookout for thermoclines, which are large quantities of water at various temperatures that don’t mix. They generate many bodies of water, each with its own environment.
The site is surrounded by crystal clear cold water, which provides a unique playground for large pelagic species such as sharks and whit-spotted eagle rays. They’re all simply soaking up the atmosphere. And if we follow the blue bannerfish, our beloved Mola Mola will appear as if by magic. After that, we’ll finish the dive on a large plateau where white tip reef sharks hide beneath sturdy table corals. On this plateau, turtles are also cruising calmly.
