This week in Belongas, South Lombok we are thrilled to announce the launch of our second boat for the famous dive sites down here in South Lombok. The boat is from Vidar the owner of Pangang Villas situated in Pangang bay at the very south tip of south Lombok. In this location are 3 self-catering villas, plenty of space, magnificent views of the Indian Ocean and the two Dive sites that everyone comes here to see “The Magnet” and “Gili Sarang”. Our first customers are a group of 5 from Singapore setting out for exploration tomorrow morning!!
Once again this week we have had the outstanding pleasure of 25+ Blue spotted stingrays all in a 10 meter square radius. Some just relaxing on the ocean bed and others swimming about closely. This is the second time now in 3 months that we have been lucky enough to witness this rare occasion. What they are doing and why is still beyond us but what a beautiful sight. Divers Maurille, Tina and Sebastian all stopped for a good 10 minutes just staring, counting and taking in this event. This occurs at our dive site called “Gili Sarang Diving” which is famous for the schools of Mobula rays.
Among the blue spotted stingrays we have still been seeing big schools of Mobula Rays, white tip reef sharks, Hammerheads (both great and scalloped), barracudas, trevally’s, plenty of Nudibranchs, boxfish and much much more.
It has been a busy month for us down here, a boat going out every day for over a month now and all happy divers to bid farewell.
