The Mysterious Dive Sites of Nusa Penida

But did you ever hear of PmG? A very special and mysterious dive site on the north coast of Nusa Penida. Hidden between two more known dive sites Buyuk and Sental.
Special because there is a little temple on the top of the surface. Or actually same like the Tanah Lot in Bali, whenever it is low tide you see the temple been build on a rock. So PmG is a kind of a mini Tanah Lot based at Nusa Penida dive site.
Mysterious, because the famous Mola Mola seems to visit it a lot! Even in low season! But let’s keep that a little secret between us.
