We are planning to be visiting Bali for holidays and we love to snorkel and also dive sometimes, can you suggest where to do snorkeling or diving in Bali. Also I heard that there are other less popular or tourist pack place to snorkel / dive as well, can you please recommend? Thank you.

Besides Bali, which you would easily find tour operators or independent boats to take you out for snorkeling and diving, you may also consider the Gili Islands, west of Bali. Here in Gili Islands like Nusa Lembongan or Nusa Penida, there are many spots for snorkeling / diving, particularly beautiful are Menjangan Island near Pemuteran or Meno Banks. If you want to go off the beaten track you may try diving or snorkeling around the Komodo (Kanawa Islands) or Rinca Islands, further east of Bali.
