Lembeh Straits Nudies Paradise

PDF Print E-mail

Lembeh strait is one of the most interesting marine habitats. A real macro paradise and a great place to do scuba diving!

There are over 30 dive sites around the Lembeh strait, most of them are either sandy areas or small reefs. Don't expect spectacular walls or huge reefs, here you are doing so called muck diving - searching for the rare and the special.

But it's also a good place to see other shy critters such as the mimic octopus, the flamboyant cuttlefish, harlequin shrimps, wonderpus, skeleton shrimps and many nudibranchs. The fish at this place are also a collection of weirdoes: Ambon scorpionfish (Pteroidichthys amboinensis), stonefish, sea robins, stargazers, devil fish and even the weedy scorpionfish (Rhinopias frondosa).

There are also beautiful seahorses, pegasus, ghost pipefish and the endemic cardinalfish. Although most divers come here for the muck diving, Lembeh has much more to offer. Specially around Lembeh island there are some small but very beautiful coral reefs and at the northern tip at Batu Kapal the currents attract large pelagics like mackerels and sharks. There are also four beautifully covered wrecks, two of them large and all within limits for recreational diving. This area is not a national marine park unfortunately. Water temperatures can sometimes be a bit cold, in July-August it can be until 26 °C, the other months around 28 °C.
