From Labuhan Lalang, the wooden boat journey takes about 30-45 minutes to Menjangan Island, depending on the tide. This dive commenced at White Beach, the island's only sandy shore. As soon as you see the drop-off, head left. Maximum depth: 25m. Total bottom time: 23 minutes. Visibility: 20-30m.
Initially, the dive was a bit murky for the first 5m depth due to the shallow sandy bottom. The visibility got significantly better as I descended to the maximum depth of 25m.
The dive is truly fascinating. Although I must say that Pos #2 Right Side was much better in term of marine growth, massive gorgonian sea fans, dendronephthya colonies as well as the visibility itself.
Nonetheless, all else being equal, the dive was a great experience. From about 10m to 25m deep, the variety of soft corals was simply outstanding. It was like seeing one magical garden of corals after another.
There was a slight current during my dive, hence drift diving was the order of the day. Overall, the fish variety in Nusa Menjangan was a tad disappointing if you are into large ones. There were no sharks, wrasse or turtles, although I spotted a titan triggerfish amongst the coral reef.
There was also a decent selection of micro organism such as sea horses and nudibranch. My dive master was trying hard to point at these tiny creature but I mostly missed them.
Highly recommended! Although my Pos #2 Right Side dive was slightly much better.
