The ‘jewel’ of Penida. Toyapakeh, which means ‘salt water’ in Balinese, is the richest site in Penida. It offers a steep wall to the south, terraces with huge hard coral formations in the bay and a shelving reef in the north.
If you love macro-life this site does not disappoint with numerous species of nudibranch, porcelain crabs hiding in the anemones, squat lobster and a whole range of critters.
The density of coral, sponge and fish life is incredible and on a good day it has all of this plus the possibility of large pelagics (hammerhead sharks, bamboo sharks, marble rays, mantas and sunfish have all been spotted here).
