Q?

Is there a housereef?

A.

No reef but spectacular muck diving at our beach. With a jetty, rocks and the wreck of a 15m long boat. If the sea is calm this spot is great for endless diving and watching critters. Since august 2014 we are working on the construction of an artificial reef. Shallow 3 – 7m dives.

Q?

How far is the distance from the airport to your hotel and divecenter?

A.

Don’t count miles when travelling through Bali. Everything looks so close on the map but small roads and heavy traffic take its toll. Your trip from the airport to our resort will take some 3-4 hours. It’s a scenic drive however and unless you are too tired from your flight you will enjoy watching the ricefields, lakes and mountains. We offer pickup service at 60 € per car /3 passengers. Service also available at night time.

Q?

Do we need a Visa?

A.

Yes. It’s a “Visa on Arrival” that can be purchased at the airport at 25 USD. It is valid for 30 days. As of june 2015 this visa is free of charge for EU citizens.
