The Dive Sites in West Sekotong, Lombok consists of the following sites:
Gili Renggit, Timur (East) - A sloping reef that levels off to about 20 metres, this site is filled with feather stars and soft coral tress. Look out for mantis shrimp, turtles, ornate ghost pipefish, nudibranchs, gobies and porcelain crabs. At about 17m, there are patches of snow white anemonies.
Gili Renggit, Barat (West) - This site has a steep sloping reef of soft corals that level off to a sandy bottom. Look out for turtles and lobsters under the rocky ledges and among the usual suspects of Moorish idols, wrasses, sweetlips and moray eels. There are huge fields of Staghorn corals in the shallows.
WHIP POINT, Gili Renggit (North) - This site has an impressive array of hard corals. The table corals here are HUGE and entirely intact. Look under them for stingrays, sharks and turtles taking a snooze.
Secret Garden, Gili Layar - A gentle sloping reef filled with soft corals, huge barrel sponges and whip corals with squat lobsters, gobies, xeno crabs and Zanzibar shrimp. Another highlight is the profusion of tiny yellow sea cucumbers. In the shallows are hard coral and rock formations.
WILL’S BEACH (Discovered by Odyssea) - This site is a favourite among macro photographers for the huge variety of creatures found here. This gentle, sandy slope is covered with nudibranchs, flounders, puffers, skeleton shrimp, robust, halimeda and rough snout ghost pipefish, tozeuma shrimp, Zanzibar shrimp, flying gurnards, mimic and long-armed octopuses, Ambon scorpionfish and much much more.
Medang Barat - Currents can be strong at this site, so a negative entry is recommended here. When you descend quickly, the depth levels off to about 30 metres. Garden eels make their home on the sand amongst the rocky outcrops. Look under the ledges for turtles, rays and sharks. There are huge fans here and around them, try and spot octopuses, mantis shrimp, moray eels, snapper and sweetlips.
Sunken Island - Like the name suggests, this site gently slopes to about 25 metres. When visibility is good, the place looks like a manicured garden with pristine, intact hard and soft corals. Here you will find nudibranchs, crabs, mantis shrimp, stingrays, sharks, eagle rays, turtles, octopuses and cuttlefish.
GILI KURA KURA, BARAT (WEST) - A great place to go to for newbies. This site is shallow with hardly any current. Swim with the usual reef fish like Moorish idols, wrasses and anthias. Watch out for the fire coral, though. This site is even better as a night dive. Basket stars, spider and porcelain crabs, ornate and robust ghost pipefish, cuttlefish and slipper lobsters like coming out when the moon comes out.
NUDIE SLOPE, GILI POH BARAT (WEST) (Discovered by Odyssea) - This is a rubble slope that has more then meets the eye. If Gili Renggit Timur is filled with feather stars, this site is filled with hard, disc-shaped corals. Look out for nudibranchs and all kinds of shrimp and crabs among them. Watch out for octopuses, hermit crabs, Saron shrimp, harlequin shrimp, velvet ghost pipefish and ornate ghost pipefish too. An excellent site for night dives.
GILI POH, TIMUR (EAST) (Discovered by Odyssea) - This site is very similar to Nudie Slope with all the same creatures. However, if you want to get pictures of Banded pipefish, this is the place to be.
BATU GENDANG - Only for highly experienced divers, this site is tide dependent and reef hooks are recommended. Watch for angelfish, batfish, bumphead parrotfish, sweetlips, turtles sharks and eagle rays.
GILI GELONG (MONKEY ISLAND) (Discovered by Odyssea) - This site has a rubble and sandy bottom that is home to a variety of mantis shrimp, ribbon eels, shrimp fish, cuttlefish, anemone crabs and shrimp. Look in the crinoids for snapping shrimp and whip corals for Zanzibar shrimp.

Luxurious accommodation in the Southwest coast of Lombok – villas, rooms, restaurant, spa and professional dive services.
Cocotinos Sekotong is a 4-star boutique beach resort and spa, set amidst a coconut grove in Sekotong Bay, on the southwest corner of Lombok Island.
Guests arrive by air at the new international airport at Praya in South Lombok and a 75-min drive brings them through well-swept towns, lush green padi fields and verdant forests; the final part of the journey follows a winding coastline from picturesque Lembar Harbour to a secluded white-sand beach at Tanjung Empet. (Google Map)
The site where the resort is built was chosen for reasons of accessibility (the roads are paved and well-maintained all the way from the airport to the resort), and the availability of electrical power, water and telecommunication links. Furthermore, the resort faces the 3 coconut-fringed islands of Gili Nanggu, Gili Tangkong and Gili Sudak.
Fronting the resort is a glorious white-sand beach which spans over 300m, part of which lies within a private cove.
While the northern Gilis (Trawangan, Meno and Air) are well-known and developed, these 3 islands in the south-west are still unspoilt, tropical islands. Gili Nanggu, which is closest to the resort, is already rated as one of the world’s best snorkelling destinations by Silkwind magazine. Apart from these 3 islands, there are 10 other islands within an easy boat ride.
Cocotinos Sekotong was designed on a grander and more luxurious scale, while still maintaining that cosy ambience and personalised service, now synonymous with our Cocotinos brand.
