If you don't hear from others who have done this particular trip, I would Google for the information, as there is a lot there to read.

You would need to allow yourself at least an overnight stay and more likely more than one, in order to make the most of a vist to Menjangan.

You could either get there by orgnaising a driver for yourself or perhpas take up a package deal to go and stay and snorkel with their gear...as I say, have a read of what there is available, by Googling it.

Have fun.

That's what I am saying, you need to stay there in order to make it worthwhile...it's a long drive if you plan to do it all in one day and return to Kuta. Sometimes you just have to grin and bear it and pay the extra to stay somewhere despite having accommodation in Kuta.

Hi,

I agree you really have to stay at least one night (better several nights) in this area, otherwise you will be travelling too much in one day.

We stayed in Pemuteran, which is also in the north west of Bali, close to Menjangan Island, and it took us four hours by rental car to reach Ubud, and we stopped only once for a short break.

Have a nice stay,

kind regards,

Sylvia

Thats a long way to go for a day trip.

Besides. Menjangan is better known for its diving rather than snorkeling. You might want to read up on Amed. There's off beach snorkeling and doable if you leave early morning. A more practical option if you are not overnighting.

Hi,

I have been to Menjangan and Amed. Def agree that if you are not planning on spending one night there, then head for Amed, though even for Amed, I would snorkel there in the morning.

You need to set aside at least 3h hours to get to Menjangan. Once you hit west, you still need to get a boat to go to Menjangan. You have to go there with a ranger as it's part of the Bali Barat National Park(so that area is the Marine Park). Many hotels in Permuteran provide the equipment(for a fee or course). You can also stay on the island, but there is only the Waka Shorea, as far as I know. I think there is another hotel, but I do not know the name I remember seeing the lights though...

The waters there at Menjangan are lovely. Between Amed and Menjangan, I prefer Menjangan. Amed has "black sand", so if your timing is not good and if it's choppy then the sand gets stirred up and you can't see very much.

When I went to Menjangan, I did it as a day trip as I wasn't staying on the island. They took us to 2 sites to snorkel. Both were lovely as both had live coral with gorgeous colours.

Personally, I think that if your hotel is at Kuta, your nearest (nice) place to snorkel is Nusa Lembongan. I ahve heard hat you can also snorkel at Nusa Dua, but I haven't snorkelled there.

That was written some time ago though...but it'll give you an idea.

Hope this helps. :-)
