Kalimaya dive spots

Sumbawa coast

Kalimaya Dive Resort is situated on the east coast of Sumbawa near the port town of Sape. Our PADI 5* dive resort is the first of it’s kind and is situated near many shrimp farms that use a lot of nutrients which are constantly being replaced into the ocean. As such, our gorgeous house reef is fortunate to be populated by numerous critters and schooling fish. Making scuba diving the Sumbawa coast second to none.

When diving the Sumbawa coast, our house reef in particular, you will discover that it’s the perfect place to spot a variety of marine creatures. Including paddleflap rhinopea (yep, we have 3), bumblebee shrimp, octopus, nudibranch, eels, stingrays, and frogfish to name a few. When going a little further by our boat you will arrive to a plethora of walls, overhangs, black and white sandy plateaux’s – all hosts to a wide variety of marine life! Travel further south and you will uncover Pulau Kelapa, which translates to ‘Coconut Island’. Believe us when we say it’s not only gorgeous underwater, but on land too – boasting a dreamy pink sand beach

Gili Banta

Have you dived between two oceans? The high velocity action of Gili Banta is where the Pacific and Indian oceans meet, bringing in fish big and small. Perfect for schooling fish, sharks, octopus, amazing corals, and manta rays swimming by. After diving Gili Banta there’ll be no need to talk, we’re sure you’ll be speechless!

Current diving Gili Banta and Komodo National park is particularly famous in the diving world. This style of diving includes drift dives, where we can explore a vast expanse of the reef while letting the current push us along. We also do pinnacle dives where we stay in one spot holding on to allow the currents to wash past us bringing in nutrients and schools of fish. Do you like big stuff? This area is famous for big pelagic creatures including but not limited to: many types of sharks, oceanic and reef manta rays, mobula rays, eagle rays, schooling tuna and jack fish to name a few… but don’t take our word for it, come and see for yourself!

Gunung Sangean

Have you ever dived a volcano? Here’s your chance! The active Sangean Volcano is one of the worlds most diverse sites, possessing a world-famous black sand volcanic reef. During your volcano diving experience at Sangean, you will notice it has a constantly bubbling bottom. This attracts a huge variety of biomass. From weird and wild critters that inhabit the ocean floor to “black coral” which actually comes in a variety of different colours. It’s black backdrop provides the ideal setting for the rainbow of colours provided by the marine life and corals. Simply said, the volcano diving at Sangean makes for the perfect muck dive. It’s an underwater macro photographer’s dream, where one can often see Pygmy Seahorse, Nudibranch, and Frogfish. Get ready to be amazed and to go home bragging to your friends!

West Komodo

Have you experienced the land of Dragons? Recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, The Komodo National park has more than 1000 species of fish and 260 species of coral. Perfect for crazy encounters with the wild and rare which inhabit these beautiful underwater gardens. Did you know that scuba diving West Komodo is an experience so unique that it’s not accessible to most?

From Kalimaya Dive Resort you can experience diving West Komodo and other rarer sites. We do not explore the traditional sites as you can from Labuan Bajo. For this reason, there is a high probability of having these pristine dive sites exclusively to yourself. We do not hold typical ranger-led Komodo dragon tours either – what we offer is something unique, the chance to explore the unexplored…
