Located on the southern end of the Bali beach area, Tanjung Benoa is an idyllic diving spot on the island for travelers who do not possess a diving certification yet are keen on exploring the wondrous ocean life underneath the water.
For beginners, Sherly explained that instructors are present to teach and accompany travelers during their diving sessions.
“For certain, there is an instructor or trainer who will teach tourists how to dive and other basic diving knowledge. Tourists do not have to feel afraid about diving even if it is their first time.”
