Sweetlips Face

Blue Corner Dive Site

Blue Corner (aka Jurassic Point) is located at the end of Nusa Lembongan, the long thin island just north west of Nusa Penida, and is a very popular drift dive.

Having done a back-roll off the boat, you descend to a slope which starts at 10m, has pretty soft corals, and where you may see pufferfish and boxfish, sea snakes, lionfish, nudis, scorpionfish, barracuda, triggerfish and angelfish.

The current takes you round to the point, “The Corner”, where there is a deep vertical wall, with a convenient overhang at around 25m that provides useful shelter.

Blue Corner is usually full of fish such as sweetlips, as well as sharks, big Napoleon wrasse, big tuna, Marble and Eagle rays, Giant trevally and other marinelife including, in season, Mola-Mola (Ocean sunfish).

It is not always possible to reach the corner due to the currents which can be changeable. Temperatures vary from 20-28°C as thermoclines are not uncommon here. Visibility is 15-30m.
