Seraya Secret perfect for underwater photography

Seraya Secrets is one of the most famous critter diving sites in Bali.  With dark volcanic sand covering the bottom, this series of sites is perfect for underwater photography.

The diving here is classic Balinese macro diving. The topography of Seraya Secret is a gentle black sand slope with ridge and valley terrain. The valleys are mostly featureless sand flats, while the ridges are home to corals and sponges. A guide with an “eagle eye” is the secret to finding all the best creatures here. Animals commonly encountered here include harlequin shrimp, ornate ghost pipefish, pygmy seahorses and a plethora of nudibranchs. Larger animals include leopard morays, lionfish and the occasional seahorse.

It’s easy to spend long periods of time in the shallows looking for leaf fish, catfish and skeleton shrimp. This is one of the most rewarding sites in Bali for photographers. It’s also one of the best sites to find the elusive boxer crab!
