Manta Point is located in south-west Nusa Penida. It is one of Bali's most frequently visited divesites. This area of the coastline is dramatic limestone cliffs that descend straight into the ocean. The swell can be stupendous, sometimes making entry impossible by mid-morning.
There's a sandy bottom at 12-18m. The water is quite cold because it comes in from the ocean (22-26degrees). You may also see other pelagics such as tuna and tiger mackerel.
It's possible to encounter the mighty Manta Ray year round at this location. Dive conditions can be challenging at this place because this part of Nusa Penida is under the influence of the ocean to the south.
