Meno Wall

This divesite has two walls close together, ranging in depth from 5m to 20m. It is a divesite with a big variety of creatures and very good voor a macro dive or underwater photography. At the end of the wall you'll often find some huge turtles. Spanish dancers, lobsters,crabs ranging from small coral crabs up to the huge sponge crabs, shrimps, cuttlefish and scorpion fish are amongst the many creatures that can be seen here. Meno Wall is a great spot for night diving.

The wreck is covered with different  hard & soft corals and surrounded by groups of different fish like Oriental & Harlequin Sweetlips, Black Snappers & Batfish. On the plateau you can find Prickly Leatherjackets, Trumpetfishes & Scorpionfishes. Close to the Jetty there's a pinnacle full of Glass fish where you can also find octupuses, cleaner shrimps and different Angelfishes.

 

Hans

The favourite divesite of many divers visiting the gili’s due to the many creatures to be found.

But even without a camera you won’t get bored on this divesite, finding Blue-spotted Stingray’s, Ribbon eels,  Frogfishes,  Anemone shrimps, Ornate ghostpipefish,  Mackerels and much more.  If lucky you find the resident turtles sleeping in one of the big barrel sponges, which is hilarious to see.
