Gamat Bay is one of the few dive sites at Nusa Penida where you don't have to just 'go with the flow', the bay is protected from the currents although once you head down the steep slope at the mouth, you are again drift-diving.
Gamat Bay is a profusion of colorful soft corals, with gorgonians and hard corals everywhere. The shallow areas are lovely, full of reef-fish - some quite rare, commensals, nudibranches, and could take your whole dive, particularly if you are a photographer. The larger fish life here is fairly diverse with some large specimens of surgeonfish, grouper and unicornfish. Overhangs and a couple of small caves provide resting places for white tips and turtles.
